What materials did you use? medium weight jersey, perle cotton for backstitching, and button and craft thread for herringbone stitch on binding. This pattern is by Oliver +S and is called the tea party dress. I read about a similar dress on the AC Journal and decided to make one for my granddaughter Cora for Christmas.

What are you most proud of? I really love how it turned out. And it only took 2 weeks or so to do, really like those smaller projects :>)

Adorable! I can't believe you made that in 2 weeks.

Thank you, it's a size 4 so pieces were fairly small compared to adult sizes. Also I cheat and sew the pieces together on the machine. I use a small zig zag stitch to machine stitch the seams, that way it has a bit of stretch, and it also has that hand sewn look from the right side. But all of the backstitching around the flowers, the seam felling and the biniding herringbone stitch is all by hand.
