|Mary's Fancy Sash Dress|
This is the second of three dresses from Girl's World, by, Jennifer Paganelli. This one is called Mary's Fancy Sash Dress. The fabric is Ruby by Moda (both the girl and doll dress).
I constructed this dress just as the book stated. I did err and make a size to large, but my daughter will grow into it soon. Since this is a dress without zipper or buttons, it would be an easy beginner project. Without the buttons or zipper for a tighter fit, the bodice is loose. This dress would also be a perfect dress for the younger toddler that wants to dress themselves, but buttons and zippers are too much for them to handle.

The book shows the sash tied in the back and also looped around and tied in front. This is the second dress I have made my daughter that did not have an attached belt. I have found that the belts sag as she runs and plays during the day, but the ability to wrap it around twice and tie it helps it to stay in place.

I love this Ruby fabric! It had a large and small floral print, which I thought would work wonderfully to give a sense of proportion to each dress. Both prints match the size of the dress.
My garden was started late this year. Just hope I get a few green beans that the deer don't find!
Enjoy your spring weather!
