Claire Dress with Amy Butler's Love Fabric


I finished the Claire dress from Portabellopixie this morning. I traced out the pattern Thursday night, cut the fabric Friday morning, and sewed it all together this morning while Zerah slept for 3 1/2 hours! I found this dress very easy to put together. The pattern is very clear with tons of color pictures illustrating each step. This version is the Petal Knot Apron Dress. I do want to try some of the other versions as well. I am extremely happy I picked up this pattern because it was so easy and I love the way it turned out. The only change I made was using one fabric for the skirt instead of two prints.


This version is made from Amy Butler's Love line. I love this fabric and wish I had ordered more. I do have a little bit left, but not as much as I would like! It is a 12 month size.

One really neat thing about this pattern is she allows for you to sell versions of this pattern without having to pay extra. I wonder if I could sell some, if I made a few extra? I need to do something to produce some extra money so I can buy more fabric. :)
