Happy Birthday Dress


Joy Hadden had a great Color Challenge over on Stamp TV yesterday using Pink and Navy Blue. I just adore these two colors together and instantly thought of paper piecing with polka dots the dress from Retro Boutique! I love this little dress and would love one of my own (albeit a bit larger and these arms need sleeves, LOL!)

I am tickled with how it turned out and let me tell you I played around with the ribbon trying to get it just right. I originally wanted Navy stitched ribbon (but couldn't find enough) and I even tried some wide organdy Navy ribbon, but it just didn't look right.  So I settled with the pink.  Sometimes you have to adjust... (NOW I need to get a hold of some more Navy Stitched Ribbon!) *~*

I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
