I made around 6 dresses this weekend for my daughter, but she doesn't appreciate them right now so no model Sad. Here is what I call her picnic dress, with red gingham and vintage cottage kitchen fabric. I loved this fabric the moment I saw it and I am glad that I have finally done something with it. It truly is one of my favorite dresses. Oh, it also has a double faced sash around it that ties in the back.

I appreciate your dress! The fabric is wonderful and I would completely wear it if it were a grown-up size.  Smiley Great job!

That dress is fabulous.  I have lots of retro-style material that I have yet to find a use for, it's great when you finally find a purpose for that material you just had to have! Wink

wow! That is a fabulous dress! Amazing! Beautiful!
I hate that this site is so intimidating. I'm definitely not as good at lots of crafty things as most folks on this site....
that is beautiful! I wish I could sew that well!

Oh gosh! It IS super -- the fabric and the way the fabric works with the design -- every little thing! Hug to your dd, mine is often reluctant to put things on too. My son too for that matter!
