I Love Easy Patterns!

I was lazy and sidetracked this year and never got around to making Miss Abby a new spring dress. Poor thing will have to settle for a new skirt. The pattern is "Little Charmer" by Indygo Junction, made with 2 charm packs from Moda's "Fig & Plum."

This little cutie went together super fast: started it mid-afternoon, made dinner, worked out & finished it up after dinner. It's supposed to have rick-rack along the horizontal seams, but I didn't think that would go too well with this fabric - so I did some simple decorative stitching instead (doesn't show up too well in the pic though). Sweet & feminine, don't ya think? Plus, there are enough charms left to make her a matching bag...
