Thanksgiving Playdate Dress for Lucy

I am soooooo pleased with how this dress came out. I used the Oliver and S Playdate Dress pattern and this was my first crack at it, and It went very well, no problems. I have to thank Nicole for her great tutorial on making this dress that I used the entire time and also for her great idea of adding a tab instead of the ruffles and buttons on the front yoke. So I used Berry kona cotton with Heather Ross Far Far Away I double gauze flowers as the yoke (with a kona white lining) and Bubble Gum kona cotton as the piping and accent color. I added a tab on the front left yoke with an embroidered flower to match the HR print. I love the beauty of this little dress, the practicality of the pockets and the pleats in the sleeves and on the dress that create beautiful dimension in the solid berry. Maybe next I can snap a picture of Lucy wearing it :)
