Scarlett's Back-to-School Dress

I say "back to school", but really, it's going to be her first time going.  Makes me happy and sad all at the same time!

As you probably know, I'm a sucker for anything "vintage".  Vintage-inspired, actual vintage... you-name-it.  For this dress, I used Amy Butler Lotus Full Moon and paired it with Michael Miller Sweet Stuff.  The pattern was Simplicity pattern 2461- Dress option "B".  I added a band of contrast to the very edge of the sleeves by making the Amy Butler fabric into single-fold bias tape.  Buttons were added too, but other than those two things, I basically stuck to the pattern on this one.

She's getting so BIG!
