a dress!

IF.....you know how to use a sewing machine....
you REALLY should make your little girl a dress....
at least ONCE!
Don't you think???

I finally did it!

I found a FREE pattern here...
that I used as my jumping off place!
If you look at the pattern you'll see....
I didn't follow it
WORD. For. WORD.
;)

Since I made this while my little one was at school
I had an issue with the length.
I made it WAY too short....
Guess I still see her as my BABY. :)
Sooo....
I added that bottom piece.

I added a yo-yo flower to dress it up a bit...
and some elastic around the mid section.


I feel like I've NOW done one of those MOMMY things
you're supposed to DO if you know how to sew!!!

Hey!
I might even do it again!

    Very cute Beth.
    I made a few dresses for my granddaughter but her Mom isn't crazy
    about them so I think they have been donated to Goodwill.
    I hope they cute on some little girl somewhere :0)

    Happy sewing
