Sometimes you just have to let go. And so it was when we were browsing Joann's for a weekend craft project and Stella spied this … lovely? … cat fabric.
I originally planned to make the ruffled version but she insisted on the plain one. As it was MUCH less work, I didn't argue.
This dress is dead simple to assemble. I used flat piping at the bodice, but honestly because I don't like this fabric I didn't want to spend time doing the piping down the skirt pieces as well.
It could be worse, I suppose.
And you can't argue with a wearer who loves it this much.
