Strawberry Sweetness

Well, this is long overdue in coming. Oops.

So you might remember the lemon dress that I made for one of my sisters. My other sister requested a strawberry dress around the same time, but we could not, for the life of us, find a strawberry print locally that wasn't, shall I say, kitschy? We were looking for a sweet print in colors that were softer with a vintage feel to it. I made sure to keep my eyes peeled for... something. Anything. 
And I finally found the perfect cotton while haunting a local quilting shop. 
ISN'T IT CUTE???!!! 
And it was begging to be used with this pattern. Sometimes fabrics talk very loudly like that. ;) 

But on the fabric shelf it sat (this is a very familiar tune for me). Once I finished school, I knew what my first project should be. Whipped out the dress in no time (since I've done this dress 3 times now it was all very familiar ground) and left it on my sister's bed for her to find. I think the first time she wore it was to church and then a date afterwards. I wasn't at that service, but apparently some people wanted dresses just like it. But doesn't that defeat the purpose of having a one-of-a-kind dress if others have the exact same dress? ;) 
Sorry, not sorry, about all the gushing. 
It's just a simple, comfy, easy-to-wear cotton dress that has already gotten a lot of use out of it this summer. 

Until next time!
