I have been sewing this summer a variety of purses, tote bags, diaper bags.  But I am wanting to sew a couple of cute little girl dresses.  Does anyone have any tutorials or instructions on how to make a cute dress for little girls?  My only problem is that I am looking for a particular dress.  This dress must have the top part and bottom parts separated.  I dont want a one piece dress.  I am looking for the pieces separated so that I can create a variety of bottom part of the dress ( the skirt part). 

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Are you looking for something that looks like a dress but is two pieces, or would you be interested in tops and skirts?

Have you checked the tutorial list in the completed projects forum?

I know a little garden close
Set thick with Lily and red Rose
Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night.

Looking at the pic you have here, I am interested in a dress like the one the older girl is wearing in that pic.
Any ideas?

That dress was made from Simplicity pattern 5704 (one of the six dresses made easy variety).

Check this link for all the options included:

It wouldn't be difficult to adapt this pattern to make two pieces.  Just lengthen the bodice and alter the back closure.

A pattern that I think is really cute is this one from Butterick:

The yellow outfit shows you the front, and the real picture shows you the back.  I will be making this one for next summer.
