What materials did you use? Apples and Pears by Alexander Henry and a generic matching yellow quilting cotton that I picked up at my local fabric store.

What are you most proud of? I tried a lot of new things, including a full row of button holes (I'd only done single buttons before). This was the most complicated dress I've made so far.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was a bit of work but worth the effort. My only disappointment is that is ended up being far too big for my daughter so it will be a while before she can fit into it.

I forgot to say I know it is designer fabric. I am looking for Tayna Wellan fabric also.

I keep hitting the enter button, sorry. Where would you find designer fabric if you are shopping in the states. I am going to Indiana in a couple of weeks. I see the fabric and have order off Etsy. I was hoping that there was someone near here to buy from for other designers because it takes so long to come after you order. Do you sell your projects?

Try sewmamasew.com I love this site for ordering cute designer fabric and it has $5 flat rate shipping.

Once in a while you can find a designer fabric in Joann's but your better off looking at quilting shops or buy online.

I love your cute dresses! I actually saw that fabric online and fell in love...now I love it even more! I've been making those cute little skirts for a couple of years now, I think I'm ready to graduate to the dress. (Not this one, that's like grad school for me!) Thanks for sharing your projects! :)

I would love this dress in a size 8/10 women's!!! Really! It's cute, comfortable, practical, and beautiful. I love simplicity. Why don't people get to wear what they love???

Love this dress, where is the pattern? Did you buy it?

For some reason, my pattern links aren't working on Craftsy anymore. I have no idea why because when I go in and check the links are there. Here is the link. It was a sew-along so it's spread over a couple posts on Craftiness in Not Optional... http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2011/05/anna-dress-part-1-pattern-and-pieces.html
