    Fancy pillow dress. I will make one for my fifteen month old sister. I will make the big bow like yours.

    Absolutely Adorable!!!! I am going to make one this weekend for my friends granddaughter and then will of course have to make one for my own granddaughter but in a much smaller size since she is only 7 months old. Keep up the great sewing!!!

    I love the way you used both fabrics. They look great together :-)

    How adorable, and I love the choice of print!

    Do you have any recommendations on how to make it in a smaller size? For a two year old?

      if you want the length to be 21

      just subtract the 5 inch for the hem band

      so the main will be 16 and 1 inch for the stitching

      main dress : 17
      hem band :4-5
      bow : 4

      but you need the have the armhole little smaller

      you can cut it like 2.5 by 4.5 then try it before adding the bias tape

      I hope this will help

    Very sweet. You must have the best dressed girls in town. Thank you for the instructions. I may try to make a modified blouse version for myself.
