Zig Zag Dress blog tour

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  If you've followed the other Zig Zag Dresses you'll notice I took liberty with the sleeves in my version:

I wanted to make sure I had Kate's permission to change since I committed to being in the blog tour.....I didn't want to go all rogue on her awesome hard work!!! lol!  I had the original sleeve length cut out and ready to go but there would be some directional issues with this print!
I do love the way the dots have kind of an ombre effect - and I absolutely love this color on my little girl!  The fabric is Jennifer Paganelli and it's called "Bell Bottoms"  You can see all the other variations of the Zig Zag dress by clicking the blog links below!  I'm so honored to have been part of a great pattern tour!!

 The features that I love about this dress is how easy it is to put together and the perfect pleating placement in the skirt!  I also learned a new sewing technique - Kate explains what "scoring" is when trimming your seams....I've never done that before!  Thank you for teaching me something new! :)
I do plan to make some more dresses with this pattern!  I didn't use any piping on the bottom of the bodice but now I wish that I had used some red piping!  I think it would have been the perfect pop of color!

 And although I always love flutter sleeves, I think the original pattern with the elastic 3/4 length sleeve will be perfect for a dress this fall!

At the end of our photoshoot this is what the dress looked like:
We had so much fun at Mimi and Pop Pops but I think Eva Mae is trying to tell me that she's ready to get cleaned up!
Thank you again, Kate, for having me participate in your awesome blog tour!  I've loved seeing all the adorable Zig Zag Dresses!
