Christmas Puppet Show Dress for Lucy

I made this pretty red and white dress for Lucy to wear on Christmas Day 2011. The pattern is the Puppet Show dress from Oliver and S. I love the cute details in this dress especially the collar and the buttoned sleeves (see detail shot). The fabrics I used were some white and red quilting cottons along with the scallop print from Bonnie and Camille's line Ruby, I love the way the print creates a stripe/dot effect across the horizontal of the dress and continues in the sleeves. After making this dress twice I am happy to say that I have improved in my button hole making skills and all nine of the buttons on this dress were sewn only once!
