Patchwork Dress

Thanks to a handy charm pack with pre-cut squares, I was able to finish this patchwork dress really quickly!

I kind of just made this up as a I went along, but next time would probably do a few things differently.  I'm not really happy with the way the dress joins at the bodice, and would probably have added an extra square there to give it a little more flair.  It looks pretty cute on my daughter though.
This fabrics are Moda fabrics from a charm pack called Summer in the City.  I really love the prints!  Here's a detail so you can see some close up.

More of these dresses are definitely in my future, and I'll probably list a few on Etsy as well.  In fact, Joann's was having a sale on Fat Quarters last week, so I stocked up.  Stay tuned for what comes next!

  1. I hope I have found the right person... by the way I love your dresses and your little model is too precious! Did you post the pattern for the reversible star knit scarf? I have been trying to track that pattern down for a while and have had no luck! My daughter is turning 7 in two weeks and I know she would absolutely LOVE it. If you wouldn't mind I would really appreciate it if you would email me the pattern! Thank you so much,
