Christmas dress for Sonja

I recently bought this ENCHANTED pattern on craftsy at Lilac Lanes

Lilac Lane Patterns

I wanted to use this Christmas owl fabric for a dress for Sonja, so I printed out the patters and cut out the pieces- how come it’s SO nerve wrecking to do it, when I have no problem cutting up yardage for quilting? maybe because it’s usually strips and I can re-cut if I make a mistake, here there’s not enough fabric to re-do it….

Here’s the finished front- I used some chevron fabric left over from the swoon quilt

not the most attractive pictures of Sonja, but it’s still cute on her!

It was a fun pattern to make and very detailed directions, I’ll be keeping my eye out for more sales and new patterns!
