Just posted a couple of photos
of a dress and back pack that I just finished for my daughter this afternoon.
I used Simplicity 2825 which my daughter chose from the catalogue and she chose the fabric herself too. It's very bright! The bodice part of the dress is awfully short on her so when I make it again I'll take better measurements of her and adjust the pattern. The skirt is a circle and twirls really well which is important when you've just turned 5!
