I made these early last week before I started on my flowered dress. I started on them a week before that, but then decided to line the skirts of the dresses. Granted my dd and my friend's dd will never wear them together (we live 3000 miles apart
), but I had enough to make her a dress also (I have to sew the bloomers for it tomorrow) for her Birthday this month. I started using a pattern, but messed up my cuts so I had to alter it slightly by making the back more open than the pattern called for (It was supposed to be open on the sides). It'll look just as cute with a little pair of turquoise bloomers underneath I think. It was supposed to be McCall's #2213, but it didn't turn out like any of the views. I like it anyways.
I may make her a little hat to match also.
I am going to add a sash to the middle of my dd's dress (the larger dress) tomorrow to make it look more finished.
Also I still have to put a button or and eye&hook at the top above the zipper. Somehow all my eye& hooks are missing.
I used the same pattern as her 50-cent dress posted here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242438.0
but used the size 3 skirt and a different size 2 top since she has gotten taller, but not any wider since last year.
Without further ado....
