2 dresses I made for my oldest 2. I cheated and bought pre-shirred material. I made it up as I went along. The girls picked the material themselves. They are pretty proud of their dresses! And I must say, they did turn out pretty cute if I dont say so myself!!! Thet wore them to their baby sister’s Baptism.

Material Notes

Pre-shirred cotton, red satin ribbon





Me and my girls

    Love the dresses

    Did you know the top shirring part is really easy and quite fun to do as well

    I make them for my daughter all the time

    Love the extra ideas of the satin ribbon and stuff on them I have only ever made them out of whatever fabric i am using at the time

    Love that the special touches make them even more special

    When i make them for my daughter i often make matching bloomer knickers as well as she is only 3

    Luv Deb

    i love the fact that theyre not EXACTLY the same. i have 4 girls(lol-and 3 boys) and my girls like wearing the same thing but i prefer “co-ordianting” outfits rather than the smae thing on each of them.

    great job!
