Pattern Hack: Izzy and Ivy's Tallulah

I just recently learned about Izzy and Ivy patterns and joined their Tallulah dress sew along; I liked it so much that I had to make more! This time, I decided to change it just a bit and add details I love like buttons. I decided to also turn it into an open dress with enclosed gathering seams, replacing the waist sash with a button enclosure. The result was just what I envisioned and I couldn't have picked better fabric than Michael Miller's Packmates, and Hearts for the accent waistband. The Packmates collection reminds me just a little bit of my native PerĂº and the beautiful Alpacas that grace the mountains, just such elegant creatures.  Altering a pattern so much was a first for me but I really enjoyed the experience and my little one declared it "playground approved".
