That's perfect!!

I'm so jealous... I'd have the perfect little 7year old girl to make cool stuff like that to, but she wouldn't wear a thing like that in a million years.
(we just got her used to wearing something else than pink(!!) or jeans..)

Oh, your 7 year old sounds like my 2 year old.  She is such a girly girl, she wouldn't be happy if I made her a dress like this one.  She only likes pink, or purple sometimes, also if there is some kind of tv character on it, that will normally pass.  And forget about jeans....

The back is shirred so that there is some stretch, making it much more comfortable for kids. 


Do you have a picture of the back and did you do the shirring yourself?


Yes, I did shir the back myself.  Here is a picture of the back, it's kind of hard to see because the fabric is black.

WOW, I can't believe my eyes!  I made my daughter a circle skirt (actually a half circle), in almost that exact same plaid, but in taffetta.  I also made a velvet sleeveless top to go with it.  The outfit was for a Christmas party.  But alas, my daughter had the flu on Christmas eve and Christmas; we missed the party and she didn't get to wear it.  And at the rate she grows, it won't fit her for long Sad!

That bodice is GORGEOUS!  I may have to rip the fitted waistband off the skirt I made and try that.  It is WAY more rad than the original top, and would suit my DD more.  She's a little rocker girl, (incidentally, she has the exact same boots), just like her Mom.

Which pattern did you use, if any, if I may ask?

Oh, that sucks that she ended up being sick and couldn't wear that outfit!  It sounds really cute Smiley

The dress is my own pattern, I usually make my own patterns for clothes.  Sorry I can't be more helpful with that.

I actually have an auction up right now to make a custom-sized dress like this one.  The only thing is that I can only make up to a 4T, I don't have enough of the plaid dupioni to make anything bigger than that.

That's so cute! I love stuff like this for kids. And she looks os happy and free-spirited as well.

I was going to ask if she was your daughter, but that one's been answered.

Your creations inspire again, dear Smiley

That is completely adorable! (I think every post in here contains the word "adorable". Cute just doesn't cut it)

I would love one for myself.
