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.
