The blue one is definitely a play dress. The print is fun and not too fussy. I added the green around the neck just because. I played around with the pattern on this one, lengthening it, reducing the fullness, and shortening the sleeves even more. My goal was to make the body fit on one width of fabric.
As I was making the blue dress I thought it would be cute to make one with a different print on the sleeves and a band at the hem. Yes, this was Flea Market Fancy worthy. I played with this one as well, making the body a complete rectangle, which added more fullness at the top. I think I'll go back to the reduced fullness next time.
Yes, there's still more...I haven't made any long sleeve versions yet! At least my addictive behavior is useful this time.
On an unrelated note, today is my 13th wedding anniversary. Thirteen years that have gone by in a flash. A whole lot of goodness has happened over these past 13 years, I couldn't be more blessed! It's also a special day for someone very close to my heart - today is my Maw Maw's 75th birthday. Happy Birthday, Maw Maw :-) Happy, happy day!!
