I love the little south facing dormer window nook that my sewing machine is in. At this time of year, I get a lot of direct sunlight pouring, warming up the corner and making for some wonderful sewing light.
This morning I made up another dress for Kate to wear to school. I bought about a yard of this pink butterfly print at JoAnns because it screamed Kate to me. The sleeves and skirt band are from some black seersucker that I bought almost 2 years ago at Gorgeous Fabrics - actually my first order ever from there. I made myself a skirt from it back then, and I've been using the rest here and there.
I had a ladybug button left over from Ana's dress, so I stitched it onto the front band. That pink trim is just a teensy scrap of flannel backed satin that I fished out of the "doll clothes" scrap basket.
This pattern is extremely similiar to Simplicity 9497, which I made for Kate this summer. Same high yoke and gathered skirt and collar (although I omitted the collar on this version of 7667):
