I made these dresses in the summer, but I just realized that I hadn't posted them yet.  My friend is often complaining about how difficult it is to find dresses for her daughter that aren't super fancy, so I took out my trusty sewing machine to see what I could do.  Both dresses are made in a size 5 from Burda Magazine patterns (the paneled one was from an issue from this summer, and the solid gingham one was from a back issue from a couple of years ago).  If you want any more details just ask.  I like how the solid gingham one turned out much better than the other one (sorry for the absence of actions shots, but I don't get to see Ziggy (the owner of the dresses) much).
The Paneled one (for lack of a better way of describign it). 



The Gingham one.


and the back.

She's right, it is hard to find casual summer dresses for little girls so good on you. Also, Ziggy is an awesome name for a little girl.
