Sewing: Summer dress

Two years ago I bought a pattern, Butterick B4718, from Joanns. I didn't realize until after I bought it that it was 3 sizes to BIG! Oops! I had started it but just never got around to finishing it. I just wasn't motivated to finishing it because it would be awhile before this dress would get some use. So I stored the half finished summer dress in my chest of fabrics.

Yesturday I pulled it out and noticed that all it needed to finish was putting on a zipper and hem the dress and it would be done. Maybe thats why I never got around to finishing it. Zippers scare me! I just don't like putting one on.

But I tackled it and voila!

A completed summer dress. I decided to give this one to my 5 year old niece in Wyoming. Hope she likes it!

Note: I couldn't send one to her without giving one to her little sister! This happen to be another one of those projects that never got finished. A white lace trim was all it needed to finish this Mary Engelbrit skirt. And by the way, this was scraps left over from the ME quilt I made for Juliana. Here is the front and back of the skirt. I have no idea which is which.
