the Posy dress for Ribbon Retreat

I am so excited to be over on the Ribbon Retreat blog again with another dress tutorial for you guys! What can I say, I’m a sucker for cute dresses, and my girls always seem to be growing up and out of them. 😉 Oh, darn, right?

 So I created this whimsical sundress for summertime-and it’d be great layered with a long sleeve shirt in winter time as well!

The fabric I used is Verona in Rouge Stripe, and the red is a Bella solid in Betty red.
Buttons are from Joanns I think.

Thank you to my Facebookers and Instagrammers who voted on the red vs blue button decision!
I hope you red button supporters can deal with the heartbreak and betrayal that I’ve inflicted upon you. 😉

Sadie loved her “belt” and I loved how the loops turned out! It adds a fun detail.

Head over to the Ribbon Retreat blog for the full tutorial!
