Butterflies love Camelia

My dear friend Camelia warned me already last year, that she will want another DRESS .
I tried to attract her with other patterns, but she wanted only this one.

We went again to the fabric store and after some searching this beautiful cotton print catched our eyes: all colors are represented, WOW! Fortunately she loves colours as much as I do :-)
Again there are butterflies printed – indeed she wanted something else this time, but she couldn´t resist to the colours. On the other hand, she loves butterflies – or butterflies love her :-)

Me myself could hardly resist not to buy a piece for me too – but just thinking at the big stack on my table waiting to be processed, and I gave up.

This fabric is thicker than the batiste from last year, so we decided not to line the dress.
And instead of lace around the neckline I put a pink cotton bias tape.

I have a feeling this won´t bet he last dress for Camelia…

      yes indeed, this is the perfect summer dress :-) and you know what, it looks great as a shorter version too. With just 2 or 3 ruffles. With 1 ruffle is something for teenager girls :-)
