I used AS&E issue 87 "Serious Fun". Isn't this the sweetest dress?!
As anyone has read in previous posts, I LOVE PINK!
and the back is as cute as the front! For the ruffles, I used a piece of organza from my stash. After all isn't that one of the reasons we have a stash in first place? I already had two buttons left from another project. So I only had to buy one card of buttons and then I used a coupon.
Again I can't remember which issue of AS&E I got this dress from. My memory is so bad right now.
One the lighter colored stitching I used a DMC sparkle filament and a strand of light purple floss. And don't you just love the bling?!
The fabric was from Hancock Fabrics from a couple years ago. Piping was from my stash and I did have to buy buttons and they were on sale 50% off a couple weeks ago.
So lately I'm trying to not spend full price for anything I need to buy to finish my projects. Either use a coupon or get is on sale. But sometimes, we can't do that. My plan is try thinking ahead or at least planning ahead.
Til next time, happy smocking everyone!
