I adore Heather's book, Weekend Sewing , I made this Trapeze Dress in 2 hours time! The pattern design was a little big for me but the pleats gave me the perfect place to take in the dress. I have seen this dress shortened to make a cute shirt. I love that idea for a wonderful summer top. After finishing it our family jumped into our jeep for a drive in the country with a stop at the ice cream shop up the road. My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip! I hope you get a chance to try this fun project and others like it in Heather Ross' new book Weekend Sewing .
