A Very Special Purple Dress

 I call this dress special because it is one of my absolute favorites!  And I can't even take credit for the entire dress!  My friend was getting rid of these quilting squares that she had sewn, and a big flower necklace.  Originally, they were completely unrelated, but when I saw them next to eachother, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!
Using the Josephine pattern from Foo Foo threads (it was my go-to pattern for awhile!), I arranged the quilting squares just so.  I could have used a couple more, but that was out of my control (I like big, full dresses!).  Because the bulk of this dress had already been done for me, it was a quick sew!  And the necklace brings it all together.  And I didn't pay much more than a dollar to make this dress I made it back in June 2016)!

  1. This dress is gorgeous on her! I absolutely love the lavendar quilt squares, ruffle and necklace. It is unique and very creative looking. I hope Elisa can wear it this summer. It's my favorite of all her dresses! Beautiful!
