Parfait number two

I couldn't help myself, I decided to do one more short post today and show off my new Parfait.  :)

I actually made this dress in December but haven't gotten around to posting until now.  This is my second Parfait, this time with several alterations.  I am really getting a hang of these intermediate patterns!  Actually, this one was a snap, and a lot of fun to sew.  I added tie straps and a full skirt for a bit of whimsy.  This dress is made of very light cotton so in my closet it will stay until summer.  But I can't wait to get a chance to pull it out then!  It doesn't fit on my dress form, so it is pinned on.
