Welcome to my stop on the One Thimble Blog Tour for Issue 7!
I chose the Jukebox Duet Dress to sew up for my daughter.
My plan was to do the knit version, but she insisted on the woven.

I used some lovely wovens that I bought from Stay Home Fabrics quite some time ago now--they are no longer in stock there.


 
So...about the dress!
I sewed up a size 5 and added two inches to the length at the shoulder cut line as I wanted the dress past her knees. That was the only modification I made.
The dress closes in the back with a cute little placket on which I sewed three different flower buttons.

 
Overall, the dress comes together and is finished off very nicely.
 I really like details like the cuffs, tabs, and the bias binding finish on the bottom.
If you don't know how to make your own bias binding, the pattern even gives instructions for that!

 
And, of course this is one of two versions in this pattern--so you basically have two patterns in one.
