This sweet little dress is my third Ode To Joy from Maggie Bunch’s Sew-Along.Â What a great class and what a perfect little dress!Â The length was for a tunic, but Maggie’s pattern is so adaptable that I added a wider border at the hem to make it a dress.
Who doesn’t love Sarah Jane’s truly magical prints for Michael Miller?Â Many are borders, with the the fun part running along the selvage.Â That allows for two 22″ widths of delightful borders. Most have coordinating prints that can be used for the hem, sleeve and neck binding.
My first Ode to Joy was poorly made, as I was in a hurry and did not read the directions carefully.Â But I loved it anyway and so did my then 4 yo granddaughter. Â MM/Sarah Jane’s “Swan Lake” print,as shown, is still available.
