Twirly patchwork dress

I made Laney a patchwork dress as I wanted to use up a bunch of precut fabric.
I had previously spent a day going through my fabric stash and finding all the fabric that I didn't really like anymore or I didn't have enough to make something big with and cut them all up into squares using my cutter
...Well, actually, to be totally honest, I handed the fabric to my 9yo son and he put them through the cutter as he loves using it!

The pattern was really easy to use, I loved the bodice as it came together so easily and gave the dress a nice finish.  Pattern is from here and bonus, it comes as adult sizes too.
I love the dress so much that we're planning a second one for Laney and I'm thinking of making myself a patchwork skirt! 

Could you do me a huge favour? Can you click here to check out my Amazon Page & tell me what you think of it!

So simple skirts!

I bought the glitter elastic from here and I also grabbed the fabric from there too, it was super cheap!
Each entire skirt only cost me less than $5 to make and that include extra fabric left over to make something else!


If you have any ideas on what I should use the excess fabric for, I'd love to hear them! ...or alternatively, if you'd love the fabric for something, then please let me know.
