Anne’s Back to School Dress

I am so excited to report that I finished Anne’s Back to School dress last Friday morning. This was my August goal and I was worried I wouldn’t finish in time.  If you are just finishing up your goal today, you can enter until midnight tonight!

The dress turned out super cute! The fabric on top is a Michael Miller print and the fabric on the bottom is by Robert Kaufman. The piping I got from JoAnn’s. I had no idea you could buy pre-made piping, and let me tell you that has sort of changed my world! Now that I have successfully done piping in a purse (made it myself and hated every step) and a dress I feel like I can pretty much conquer any project with piping – piping that I will BUY!

Simplicity 1379A - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI am so tickled with how it turned out. The piping just gives it so much pizzazz!

Back to school dress -

The pattern is Simplicity 1379A – I made it a size 7 which is a little roomy, but I think it looks good on her. Her first official day of school is September 14th. Yes, mommy will be balling her eyes out and Anne will be skipping into the classroom beyond excited!
