The original has 4 flounces and I decided 2 was enough in this size (3T), but I will check the length and add another flounce if needed, I have lots of fabric left over. I also self lined the bodice and sewed a separate casing for the waist drawstring.
I also made a matching bolero which is from Simplicity 3943; this was in my pattern stash from last years bridesmaid dress project.
I hope she likes it, it was fun working with loud fabric and frilly patterns!
How cute!! I love making little girl clothes, however no one in my family will cooperate and have a girl! Instead I make little boy outfits....ReplyDelete
That is so cute! It reminds me of the little outfits I use to make my girls!ReplyDelete
That is the cutest little dress! It makes me nostalgic for my DDs when they were younger!ReplyDelete
Just adorable! That tiny little bolero is too cute!ReplyDelete
How cute is this!!! The colors and tiers of fabric are oh so fantastic. It bet it will be so cute on your friend's daughter.ReplyDelete
Oh, it's just beautiful! I'd love to make something like this for my friend's little girl, who wears mostly jeans (she's eighteen months old). But her mum doesn't like girly things and I fear I would be "making a point!" Which wouldn't be fair.ReplyDelete
But it is lovely. The colours are wonderful.
Awww . . . super cute!ReplyDelete
What a cute little outfit! I made this pattern for my daughter years ago and the dress was so loved, it was passed onto the cousins when she outgrew it. I'm sure your friend's daughter will love wearing it.ReplyDelete
A tiny bolero? You're killing me with the cuteness of it. I love the fabrics. And why can't you wear those fabrics too? One is never too old for beauty. And besides, you're younger than me. If you're old, I'm ancient. Wait, did you offend me or did I offend you? Or did I offend me? Oh who cares, the outfit is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
That's so cute! Lovely dress!ReplyDelete
So cute!! The little bolero is just precious.ReplyDelete
Oh terribly cute!ReplyDelete
Eeeee, the tiny bolero!!!! Too cute.ReplyDelete
Darling! I agree--it is nice to have an outlet for fun fabric you would never wear!ReplyDelete

So cute. It makes me want to sew for my baby grand-daughters!ReplyDelete
Aww this is extremely cute! You are so talented I wish I knew how to do something like this. I bet your grand-daughter loves her outfit. Any chance you could make me a womens dress...haha.ReplyDelete
