Simply Ruffled--PR&P 'It's all in the details'

 So it's all in the details (I already posted some thoughts here, just in case I didn't get this done). It's another week over at Project Run and Play. And this is another baby shower present, this time for the girl's ballet you like how I'm getting to participate by making things I need to? 
Presenting 'Simply Ruffled'
--just little ruffles added to make the dress a little something special--
 And again I used this Butterick pattern, changing it up again to add some details.
I kind of felt like Cinderella this week, allowing myself to do this fun project 'IF' I got all of the things done I need I started this yesterday at 1pm. I do love how it turned out. Light and airy feeling. It's made our of this floral Swiss dot I found at JoAnn's.
 And again, I lined the bodice, foregoing the zipper for a button in the back. I added the ruffles on the arms and the little ruffled placket to the front.

 On the bloomers I added a couple rows of ruffles and contrasting bias tape for the leg holes.
 I just like this picture and how the rising morning sun (I was up early and got to see it rise...nice after the storms yesterday!) captures the ruffles. 


  1. I can simply never get enough of ruffles. Ever. Very sweet dress.

  2. So cute Sally...what discipline to hold off on sewing until you had time. Maybe I should try that...but then again I'd probably never get any sewing done Ha Ha!!

  3. Such a sweet little spring dress

  4. this is adorable!! i love the sweet little ruffles! thanks for your comment on my dress, I'm excited to see that you sewed and outfit too!

  5. I love all those ruffles. What a sweet outfit!

  6. I like the rows of ruffles on the bloomers, and with matching bias tape on the leg openings too. Great detail.

  7. Oh it is so darling. I love your fabric and the texture on it. Great job. The whole piece is just beautiful!

  8. yeah, really love this. Contrasting bias tape always = so awesome in my book. Inspiring me to start sewing again!
