I'm bonkers for putting this much work in to a dress I am giving some one besides my kid! This took way too long, and way too much of my cool fabric.  But I like it and I want to make another one as soon as I mentally recover from this one! AndI just bought a serger so next time will be that much easier!!!

This dress is for a 4 year old, so I don't have a model and I don't have action shots Sad

Its a gift for some one so hopfully I will get pictures after its given, I would really like to see how it looks on a human!!!

That is way too cute!  I don't know if I'd be able to part with it if I were you!  Where did you get the fabric?  I'm in love with the skull and hippo prints.  Great job!

That is so incredibly cool, I can't stand it.  You know there are those 'Children's Place' addicted moms that would easily pay $50 + for that.  It's gorgeous, unique, and VERY girly!  Love it!!

isn't that funny about hating to use the fabric!?
 i already complimented this dress elsewhere, but it's awesome. i like the hippos. and the rest, of course, but i really like the hippos, cause i don't have any.  Cry
 can i come by your house and borrow your hippo fabric?

This is too cute! The skulls juxtaposed with the hippos is so rock & roll.  I'm also quite fond of that belt.  Great job!

I got the pirates from Joann's and the hippos for $7 on a really cute mini bolt, I think 3 and a half yards? from Ikea!

Thanks every one! I just woke up from my insane night of sewing! Its 1:00 pm!!!! Thankfully mu husband was here to tend to the kid!

That is something I'd expect to see in one of the high priced boutique stores!  Damn genetics...I have boys and an 11 yo tomboy.

Adorable, and that is one lucky little princess!!!

i was taking something apart the other day and went "duh that's the answer..." remember when you wanted to know what to do with the edges for all the pieces pre-serger? PINKING SHEARS! i've never owned any, they remind me of my mom always telling me not to play with 'em... but i took apart a patchwork thing that was pinked the other day, and yeah, duh. it'd work!
