Here's another dress I churned out this afternoon. The straps are sightly wider than last time, and this dress is for a one year old.

@Lovesclutter: I wound the bobbin with elastic thread by hand, without pulling the thread too much. I have the most basic of Brother machines, and the shirring came out just fine with that.

Thank you!
Yes, I did the shirring--it was really easy! I did shirring in one continuous length, since there were about 14 rows of shirring (which is probably a bit much for a 24 month old--so next time I'll probably increase the width between the shirred lines).

PS: the fabric was from Walmart--and for $1.50/yard, a complete steal (I used half a yard for the dress).

Hi everyone,

I have been a silent reader of this forum for the past couple of months, and have been *very* inspired by the wonderful clothes that you've all made. I finally took the plunge and got back to sewing dresses. I used to sew for my younger sister when I was a teenager (over a decade ago!). After moving to the US in 2001 I didnt have anyone to sew for! Honestly, I still dont--but now I have several friends with young daughters, so I decided to make a dress for one of those little girls. It is her second birthday on Saturday, and I'll probably give this dress to her (since it's not totally abominable Smiley ).

Thanks for looking!

This fabric is adorable, and the dress pattern is very nice... I'm sure your little girl will be the envy of many at Disney Smiley
