Patchwork Dragonfly Dress


Here's a sweet dress! The patchwork panels alternate from a medium solid purple and a blue/purple batik. The applique is a cute little batik dragonfly which is bonded and handstitched with blue embroidery floss.

thanks julia! it's sweet of you to say that! yes, i'm lovin' tie dyeing, anytime i get a chance. life is so busy with 3 kiddos though (i guess you know that too, lol)that it's sometimes hard to find the time.

the next thing i want to make is 1812 reenactment clothes for myself and my girls (my boy isn't interested, heh-heh, not unless it was a computer game!) i bought some patterns at the reenactment of the battle of stoney creek last weekend. i can't wait to make willow a little pinafore, dress and pantaloons!
