So this is a simple dress from New Look pattern 6578 with a peacock applique. It has lime green flower buttons.  The applique is a simplified version of one I saw on a shirt in a store.  I was having a hard time getting the dress to photograph well.  The dress is a nice deep chocolate brown and the peacock is sky blue and a paisley with sky blue, lime green and a bit of navy.




a shot of the whole applique.

and some action shots

Thanks everyone!  I'm so pleased with how it came out.

Oh. My. Gods. could the kid or the dress be any cuter?? I even have that paisley fabric and the dots, never thought to combine the two, it's perfect!

I love the paisley fabric.  I have about a yard of it left.  The combination was total serendipity.  The paisley and brown dots got tossed next to each other in the plastic bin they were being stored in and I realized how much it popped.

The paisley also looks really great on dark denim.  (also courtesy of the plastic storage bin)
