Liberty Dress by Amy Friend, pattern in Intentional Piecing

My friend, Laura, said that she’d love to see the Dress paper pieced block from my book, Intentional Piecing, made in Liberty.  I decided that I wanted to see that too!  I just finished it up this morning.  I don’t have a large stash of Liberty–just a few fat sixteenths.  If you cut carefully, a fat sixteenth is more than adequate for this block. Give it a try!

This is the original block from the book.  The dress pattern was designed to show how effectively one could use a border print. I think it’s really special this way too.  I love the way the flowers are dense at the hem and then scattered through the bodice. I used a really pretty Kokka double gauze and I see that it is still available at Sew Me A Song if you would like to make a similar block!

Unfortunately, even though all the patterns were checked again and again, we let a mistake slip by. I noticed that the order of 2 sections in this pattern were incorrect.  Fortunately, it’s just a labeling problem and will only confuse the user but not prohibit them from sewing the pattern.  The pattern pieces should be labeled as they are in the diagram below.

correction

My apologies!
