Featuring Craftiness Is NOT Optional's Junebug dress pattern:
As you can see above I made a slight change to the original by doing rounded corners and piping! I LOVE the POP the piping gives!
I made the tunic and sleeveless options so it would be perfect for fall layering.
My daughter thought the neighbours driveway post would be a perfect microphone to sing her ABC's into!
Now before I continue here are the details of the sewfab sale - it ENDS on the 8th at 8am EST by the way - so not much more time to debate over it if you have been trying to make up your mind :)

Now that you have seen the details let's carry on ! The back of the dress is simple as the on and off closures are the front of the dress.
I made mine out of a light chambray I picked up on sale (shocker I know - but really who can turn down chambray for under $4/yd??!!)
I lined the dress in a little chevron I got in a scrap pack - and I have leftover! The pattern calls for buttons but I used snaps! It was my very first time using my snap pliers and I don't know what I was so afraid of, they were so easy! I was going to do black snaps but my daughter insisted on the bright pink ones. In the end i think she made a good choice, I like the pink with the green.
This pattern went together so well and was a fairly quick sew ! It would have sewn faster if I had decided to stay with the pattern and not do the piping. However, i find sometimes simple little changes can give such a fun and unique look to an outfit.
ps. please tell me that one snap that is a bit off isn't THAT bad! It is driving me crazy - but I am scared to try and pry it off... Do I dare? Is there an easy way?
