Tessa Dress #3

I made my niece a dress from my favorite Tessa Dress pattern from Oh So Sassy.  I love this pattern because I can tweak it in several different ways.  This time, I added belt loops into the side seams and a bow at the neck.  The floral fabric is a Liberty of London for Target scarf; the purple is a vintage cotton from my Grams. 
I invested $6 in a pair of pinking shears from JoAnn (after a 50% off coupon)--very worth it.  It saved me about an hour of overlocking/zig zagging all the raw edges.  And I love the look of a pinked edge. 
ooooh, a pinked edge
I put a bunch of Anna Maria Little Folks Voile and other fat quarter bundles into the shop this week.  All these lightweight fabrics in bright colors are getting me hyped for Spring already and it's only January!
