Peony Patterns Banksia Dress {for Minerva}

In my effort to use up every last scrap, I couldn’t go past creating a Peony Patterns Banksia Dress for my youngest, after making the Sage Dress for her older sister!

How much fun are these tags?! Juno Design USA sent these reversible heart labels to me – they fit perfectly inside a side seam and make a fun visible accent on your garments!

This was my first time sewing up Banksia, and it won’t be my last! This is a cute summery dress that’s pretty easy to sew and has no button or zipper closures! The straps cross over at the back and tie, making a very feminine and pretty looking dress.

My youngest adores this dress and I think she’ll be wearing it through the winter months with a white long sleeved top underneath.

Minerva sent me this beautiful Cotton Sateen by John Kaldor. It’s super smooth and the colors are vibrant. Sateen is easy to sew, though you must use a microtex (sharp) needle, otherwise the threads tend to snag and pull, messing up the print on the fabric. To read more about this project, head over to Minerva!

She lost her first tooth!
