DIY Faux Bird Tree Bookend Tutorial

Hello my dears,

I have been totally reorganizing my studio over the past couple of weeks and one of the things I need desperately was bookend. I have quite a few sewing, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, and drawing books on top of my cubby shelf and they have a bad habit of toppling over whenever I pull one book out.

Enter my bird tree bookend!

An Orla Dress FBA

When I heard about the "sewalong" that Allie from alliemjackson.com, Rachel from makerstyle.ca, and Maddie from maddiemadethis.com were hosting, I decided I should absolutely participate. For the month of July, these lovely ladies are encouraging all sewists to make up a version of the Orla Dress which is a free pattern by Sarah of French Navy. You can read the official blog post here and find out all the details and how to win some gorgeous prizes! Today, I wanted to share a tutorial on how to do an FBA on the Orla dress. I will forewarn you, this is a picture/text heavy post.
