Tunic, Amy Butler Pattern Altered

I returned to the Amy Butler tunic pattern, again. This time I completely reconstructed the neckline. I also opened up the armpits a bit. If you'll remember that pattern was a bit tight in the pits. I did use an Amy Butler print. An oldie, but a goodie. It's lined, with muslin, of course. And I used pale pink polka dots for the button closures. Thanks to the Finny and Donk Sew Along -- from whom I won the pattern. I still love it.

Custom Order: The Flower Girl's Flower Girl

One of my recent custom sewing orders was to create a flower girl dress for the flower girl's American Girl doll. I had a picture and a fabric swatch (for matching the color) and that's it. Was a fun project. And it's actually a really cute gift for the bride to give the flower girls. Good idea.
PS -- I also made the matching headband (pictured) for the flower girl. David's Bridal couldn't get it done in time. Imagine!?!?!?
