Mie from Sewing Like Mad joins the Knock It Off series at Elegance & Elephants with this color blocked dress she made for her daughter. This was quite the undertaking (look at how many pieces she had to cut and sew together!) but she made a beautiful dress. The inspiration was a dress she spied on a Japanese web shop, now no longer available for purchase. Her post also gives a tutorial for how to ease in a set-in sleeve and make it a French seam. Go to her blog post to read more about the dress and to get her tutorial for easing in sleeves with a French seam.
