Tiers of Joy-Part 1

One of my best customers bought this multi-tiered dress last year and it looks so cute on her daughter that she wanted another one for this school year but she wanted to make a few changes.

Multi-tiered dresses are so cute and fun, because the full skirts are perfect for twirling and twirling but they are a challenge to make.  Every layer is gathered into the layer above it and this makes the skirt fuller with each tier.My customer bought the material and sent it to me.  Some people prefer to pick out their fabric but others have a difficult time imagining how a fabric would look made in a particular pattern, so they leave the selection to me. 

I just love the precious little dragonflies, the bold vibrant colors and the multitude of stars.

The trick when cutting out this dress was making sure the dragonflies were upright; we wouldn’t want them upside down on the finished product!!
