Evie's Petal Knot Dress

When I saw Evie's excitement over Indigo's Petal Knot Dress and her enthusiasm for one to call her own, I got right to it.  I've been spending most of my free time working on something else (which I'll get to in another post) and I haven't spent as much time sewing lately.  Oh how I've missed it.  And you know how I said I don't always like to sew a second dress in the same pattern as the first?  Well, the flip side of that is you know exactly what you are doing, which makes for easy, stress-free, relaxing sewing.  It was just what I needed.  This dress sewed up in only a few hours.  I really enjoyed making it.




I love these fabrics and colors on Evie.  The fabrics for both of the girls' dresses are by Anna Maria Horner.  I went to the fabric store to look for some fabric and when I asked where Anna Maria's fabrics were, I was told that they were in the sale room, all 50% off.  That pretty much made my day.  (It's the small things!)  So I picked up the fabrics for the girls' dresses + 2 yards to make cloth napkins.  I hope to get to those soon.  Here's the pattern I used.  The pattern designer is not so explicit in her instructions about finishing the seams.  She writes a little blip about it in the back, but if you miss that, you may not know.  Just an FYI.

  2. Shannon,
    In general AMH sells only at independent fabric/quilting shops. The one borderline exception is that she does sell some of her fabrics on fabric.com at a discounted price.
