With that in mind, I pulled out the Tini pattern. I've had this one for at least a year, probably more, and had never sewn it up. As usual, I checked out Flickr for inspiration, and I absolutely fell in love with this one. Seriously, does a dress get any prettier? There is also this example, and another. Absolute sewing perfection.
Well, I didn't do anything that elaborate, but I did mange to turn this out:
Pattern: Farbenmix Tini
Fabric: Michael Miller Gypsy Bandana
I found the dress to run a little wide, so I added a sash, as many of the people on Flickr have done. I also could not believe that I had a ribbon that matched this exactly. Did they come out with a ribbon line for this fabric, or did I just get incredibly lucky? I bought that particular ribbon at a tiny little boutique sewing store in Carmel, California, many months before the fabric purchase. Anyway, it was meant to be, obviously!
