Description

My daughter loves dresses and only ones that are sleeveless, so being that is still winter we do not have a lot of summer clothes yet. Since it was a warm weekend last week I decided to go ahead and design and make her a cute little dress out of her old crib sheets. I traced a pattern for the top part out of an old sundress and then for the bottom skirt part just cut 2 large squares. I traced the arm parts for arm facing and then for the neckline just used elastic for a faux smocking effect. It took about 2 hours and this is the result. She is obviously very pleased! The photos are a little blurry because asking a 2 year old to stand still is near to impossible.
