oh stop with the cute girl stuff it makes me want a girl!  Oh wait no it would have to be a grand girl! But I've already told both my boys if they make me a gramdma right now I'd kill them but man does your little girl ever look sweet. I think of all the scrap fabrics I've had over the years and how well dressed she'd have been!
This little dress is so cute and your model so adorable.
Is the shirring a tough job to do? I have the elastic thread to put onto my bobbin but just can't get it figured out yet.

First of all, THANK YOU! and my mom was the one who taught me how to sew, so my daughter has TONS of grandma stuff made for her ALL the time. Smiley Second, Shirring is SO easy! just hand wind the elastic thread on your bobbin, as tight as you like. I do mine really tight, it gets a great gather that way. Use regular thread in the needle. Set your machine to the longest straight stitch that it has, then sew right side up (regular thread to the outside of your garment). Viola! Done! Cheesy I hope that helped!

Really cute and trendy at the same time. Did you use a pattern or another dress?

thanks everyone! and no, no pattern. it was just scrap fabric, so I really thought that it wouldn't even be 'wearable'...just something to sew. I made it up as I went along. Smiley

That's gorgeous. I love the fabric and it looks perfect on her. And forgive me for being off-topic, but where did you get your adorable avatar?

It does help!!
I would never had thought to wind the bobbin by hand! I am surprised by that. I figured it would have to be machine done. Maybe this is my problem.
THANKYOU so much for taking the time to tell me this. Now I'm off to play with it.

That is darling!!  All 3 of my kids have been bugging me to make something for them out of this fabric.  Yeah, I'll do that in my spare time...  You can whip up something like that out of scrap and make it up as you go...?!  I bow to you o sewing goddess.Smiley
