I've had "Climb Every Mountain!", aka Sound of Music, playing in my head whilst sewing up the last bits of this dress for my youngest. The fabric is from Saffron Craig's Valley View collection and reminds me of snow topped mountains ... "The Hills are alive with the ..." - ok I'll stop now.
The bubble dress turned out just the way I wanted it to ... um ... except for the size. Turns out it fits my oldest instead - must have got my measuring tape in a knot!
Other than my mix up of sizes, the StraightGrain Peplum Dress Tutorial was easy to follow and I think I'll be making some more for my girls this summer (note to self - measure correctly!).

The other song I've been singing along to is Michael Jackson's "Black or White".
As soon as I pick up two pieces of black and white fabric the song starts playing in my head.
Wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that I ONLY know the chorus - so around and around and around it goes ... I'm starting to go a little "Insane in the membrane" - oh ... make it stop!
Your WIP at Freshly Pieced will provide a much needed distraction!
