Seamingly smitten pillowcase dress

So I got to try another pattern from Seamingly smitten. You'll remember Seamingly Smitten from the double ruffle halter dress I made for Tabitha for St Patricks day. This time I got to try out her new pillowcase dress pattern. Yet again it was another fast and easy pattern to put together. It came out super cute and was very fast and easy to put together. I like Jennifer's patterns because they are easy and fast. Lately thats about all i'm able to sew with potty training Tabitha and Eva being awake more as she is getting bigger (I can't believe she's already 2 months old!)
I used Halo by G.E. Designs, Gudrun Erla for Red Rooster Fabrics, I've been holding onto this fabric for about 6 months waiting for a project that I could use it for. I love the fabric but its so busy that It really needs to be used in a super simplistic design. This dress fit the bill perfectly. I think this dress shows off the fabric wonderfully. The only thing I would change about this dress is that I would make it longer, which will be easy to do next time and for this one i think i'll just add a ruffle to the bottom. I think its adorable and for a younger child the length is perfect but for my almost 3 year old i prefer longer dresses. However I also think it looks adorable with leggings under it and may leave it this length and use it as a tunic. I didn't get the best pictures because my camera battery is dead and I can't find the charger (major bummer!) so I had to take them with my Ipod. The fabric has some small blue blossoms on it which is why I chose the blue ribbon to go with it. The blue ribbon is perfect I think.
I hope you like the dress =) And If you want to check out more patterns by Seamingly smitten check out her blog, facebook and Etsy store.
