April Challenge: Peg Pocket Dress

The Peg Pocket Dress Challenge

It began on January 28, 2017 with this pattern

and these people

and all of this fabric.

Trisha Smith came to town and taught the MOS smockers in attendance at Quiltworks how to make her Peg Pocket dress. We had a great time working together under her tutelage.
(On the Friday before (1/27/17), she taught several members using her Poet's Blouse pattern.)

The Peg Pocket Dress fabric kits quickly looked something like this once class got underway:

Once class was over, the challenge was to finish the dress and bring it to the April meeting. 

 Several class attendees met up at Quiltworks later to work on the dress together. Sewing is fun, but it's even better with friends!

These ladies met the challenge and showed up on April 17 with dresses (and Poet's Blouses for some) in hand.

L to R: Debbie, Brenda, Susan, Leda, Denise, Teresa, Leslye, & Trena (not pictured: Lucy, Beth)

Leda showed how she added a sash at the back.

And here are the finished dresses, in different sizes and fabrics! Well done, ladies!!








Leslye's 2nd dress!


 And last, but definitely not least, Beth
Congratulations to all who took up the challenge and completed this adorable dress!
