Kate's strawberry shortcake dress

Here's the dress from the fabric that Kate picked out yesterday. She first was attracted to all the sparky fabrics in the prom dress aisle, but I ixnayed those. ;-) So we picked out Strawberry shortcake, and I asked her if she'd like to use some eyelet for the collar, and she agreed. Here we go:

Super girly sleeves!

I know it looks really simple, but for some reason this dress took forever (forever being almost 4 hours)... it was very slow going with the sleeves, the collar, gathering the skirt, attaching the skirt lace, pressing pressing pressing. I hope I'll get a picture of it on her this evening.

You know what I say: Little girl dresses = more time and headache than big girl dresses (usually). But this dress is adorable.

So cute! I love all the details, like the lace on the cuffs.

You asked on my blog where I got the Simple + One book. I bought it from I can't recommend them wholeheartedly, but I guess they're all right. here are my thoughts on yesasia.
