Simplicity 2767

This pattern is one of the dresses which was part of AJ's Christmas gift. S2767 bubble dress with contrasting collar, waistband and sleevebands.
The fabric is from my stash which I've had for years! I'm glad it was finally used for this dress. She did not want me to take her picture. Instead, she wanted to take 'my' picture with her 'toy camera' lol! As you can see, it is a taffeta dot print. I remember thinking I'd make a blouse out of it. There's still a little left. haha The solid black is more of a satin but perfect to coordinate with this. The underskirt that forms the bubble which is attached to the bottom of the dress is also in the made from the satin. The rosettes on the neck band are of the same fabric as the dress as is the sash ties on back. It also has a center-back zipper.
I was just thinking how old this fabric is! I think Hancocks was called Minnesota Fabrics when I bought this!! This would have been perfect to enter into the fabric stash contest on PR but I'd already completed it when that started. Oh well.

She's adorable. The dress is cute, too. LOL They're really cute when they realize they have minds of their own. I think I still have a piece of this fabric in my stash. Great minds think alike.
