Reeeeemix!! Spring Fever Dress-PR&P

It's PARTY time over at Project Run & Play!
So, approximately a week ago Project Run & Play offered up a challenge, a pattern remix!  How fun! How could I resist?  The challenge is to remix The Spring Fever Dress by Jess at Me Sew Crazy.  First of all, what a gorgeous dress in it's original form as I LOVE a good ruffle, I'm a sucker for bibs and the fabric she used on her example dress is purple--my favorite color of all time!  Let's take a quick look at where we are starting:

Super Hero Capes!!!

Apology first:  I'm sorry that I have not posted in a while (although I currently have NO readers the need to apologize still feels needed--hahaha) I have been in a sewing 'funk' of sorts.  I think it was kind of similar to when a writer gets writer's block, I was just STUCK!  I have so many great tutorials, ideas and there are TONS of sew alongs on the web, I think I just maybe have too many inspirations and my brain just short circuited :-)  BUT, I am back and I'm going to try to 1. Boost my readership (is that a word) and followers and also 2.  Devise a posting schedule of at least some regular weekly posts and stick to them once and for all.  Ok on to the project!

I made Super Hero Capes for the twins thanks to a wonderful & easy tutorial by Marigold over at "Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!"  I did mostly everything the way she spelled out in the tutorial with a few real minor exceptions.  First let's see how they turned out and then we will discuss the exceptions.  I think they came out pretty well!
