A Good Dress

I finished my Dress a Girl Around the World dress!

Isn't she pretty!?

I printed out and was planning on using LBG Studios adorable Pillowcase Dress pattern and tutorial, but at the last minute I decided I wanted to make my own pattern.  If I can't make a pillowcase dress from scratch, I don't have much promise as a future pattern designer now do I?  I think it came out SO cute!  Proudface!

It was an easy decision to hack into my precious one yard of Heather Bailey for this dress.  I've been so reluctant to use it, but this was a no brainer.  The best little piece of fabric for the best cause a little piece of fabric could go to.  :)

French seams.  Delish.

Oh, how I love it!

My original plan was to make two of these dresses, but life got in the way over the last couple of weeks - some good life things, like Emmylou turning ONE!, and having family in town, and some bad life things pertaining to the big green ribbon on my side bar :P

And since I have a bazillion new ideas swirling about my head that I want to get moving on, I thought maybe I could pay forward the good.  Here are the bits and pieces of the second dress I was going to make: 

This fabric is a lot brighter in person!  Night time pictures didn't do it any favors...

I'm wondering, lovely readers, would one of yall want to make this dress?  I have the pattern and tutorial all printed out and ready to go.  New thread, new bias tape, pre-washed adorable fabric...

Even the address for where to send the dress when you're done...

The pattern just needs to be taped and cut/traced.

So, whadaya say?

Obviously, you don't have to make this dress... You can do whatever you please!  I just feel the need to do a good thing in exchange for the good that I have in my life.

I'm not even going to call this a Giveaway.  Just a gift between friends. :)

So if you want this little batch of goodies, just leave a comment on this post with a way to get in touch with you if you win!  I'll do that random number thing on Sunday night and announce the winner on Monday!
