Description

I have a lot of large pieces of non-quilting fabrics I've acquired over the years, and I'm trying to get rid of some of them!

The fabric used for these projects I originally bought to haphazardly cover a grubby old chair inherited in my studio in grad school.  A good washing later, I used part to make a tote bag, and a significant portion of the rest to make a dress for some weddings I'll be attending in a couple weeks.  I still have a few good sized scraps, but I'm sure I'll make them into something useful soon.

The dress is based on Burda 8174, but I made it a little fuller and added the trim around the waist and scalloped hem.  The tote is Noodlehead's 241 Tote with a button closure and slightly longer strap.
