Short, sweet and to the point I use a Simplicity pattern 3856 for this dress.  I'm in love with the argile fabric as it jumped out and tried to trip me at the fabric store. 

This is my first clothing construction project and it took me 2 nights (after the monster was alseep).  It's not perfect-the argile pattern doesn't match perfectly at the seams...but hey it adds character!  I'm super proud of this...I know it's just a dress but I made it!   Grin

 





She has a red long sleeve shirt that she will wear underneath for warmth and comfort as the fabric is new cotton and maybe a little itchy.  Thanks for looking!  Smiley

So cute, don't you just love this fabric? I just made a christmas wreathe out of the same material. Creative minds think alike? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214133.msg2302302#msg2302302

That dress is so cute, and I love the fabric.  I'd love to see action shots of how it looks on your little monster.

It's a perfect Christmas dress.  Looks like it belongs on Lucy in a Charlie Brown Christmas!
