Vintage Sundress

I have realized I like designing paper pieced 2-dimensional dresses as much as the real thing!
I had so much fun designing this Vintage Sundress for Tamiko in the Cocorico Bee!

This will be a pattern very soon - I'm working on a few more styles to go with this one!
Think 50's clothing boutique : )
On a completely different note, I was so excited to get this email in my inbox!
Sorry for the crummy photo  - it was a saved screen shot so the resolution is not great.
Three of my projects from Stitch Magazine are on there!   I'll be doing a "Stitch Week" with some info and additional pictures of the projects as well as a magazine give - away.  Stay tuned!
