this was a table runner I picked up at a thrift store.  It is part of my never ending tweaking of this peasant dress pattern. 

the monkey tried it on last night and announced that it's her new drum circle dress, hence the subject.  I don't know exactly what about it makes her think drums, but maybe the fabric's pattern?

Anyhoo,

simple A-line dress.  The sash is sewn on the front and wrapped all the way around to tie in a bow



I lined the bodice with the pink broadcloth and left the sides open (as per inspiration by I forget who... sorry.  Somebody here did so with a dress they made and I liked the look.)

That's a really pretty dress, the underskirt is a really nice idea!  Waistband is cool too!

I think it's very obviously a drum circle dress, I can see her jumping around to the beat  Smiley Very nice, such a pretty and simple design.
