January's Challenge: The Bubble Dress Tutorial!

Alright ladies!
It's time to see what free tutorial Alida has chosen from her stash for this months sew along challenge.

For this challenge you can sew up the tutorial exactly as is, change a few things, or make an item inspired by Alida's choice.  It's up to you!

Now...let's see what she has chosen for us to work with!

The tutorial I've chosen for this month's challenge is my easy Bubble Dress Tutorial.
Bubble Dress Tutorial: Alida Makes
I chose this tutorial because it's pretty simple and easily customizable. It's a summery dress, but pair it with tights and a turtleneck and it can be worn year-round. Omit the straps and it can be a skirt. Use unconventional fabric, color block it, add cool pockets, mash it up with another pattern, just make it your own! Bubble Dress Tutorial

(Tomorrow the linky party will open for you to start showing off your creations!)
