thanks toesocksrock!

atmomma, the patches are 8" (which do not make a circle in this dress - you'd have to double the number of patches in each row to make a circle from this... I think.)

Naw--let her wear it to school...she rocks that outfit!  My girls have been known to wear all manner of strange combinations to school...yesterday for Mardi-Gras my younger wore a green and black tutu dance costume, jeans, a rainbow stripey turtleneck sweater, polka dot tights and red plaid shoes....and really...it wasn't that far from her normal get-up.  My older was much more conservative...a fuchsia tank top with a bright yellow sleeve-y shrug type of thing---that had started life as a pair of fun fur dance costume pants for a little little girl, and I cut a head hole in the crotch.
Yep...your baby can wear that outfit anywhere she wants.

I LOVE IT! I wonder if I can find some decent shirts at the goodwill. I would totally send my four year old to school in that. Around here she would be the hit of the class.

Thanks vegbee! I'm still trying to work up the courage to make another circle dress and boy, would that be a LOT of fabric.  Kiss Now I just need to go check out my stash and see what I can use.

thanks all! 

atmomma, am I going to have to send my husband over to stop you from patchwork abuse too?

omg, you so totally win the oddly dressed child award.  You cut out the crotch to wear as a shrug?  Very inspired!  And I agree, btw, that I should let the wee one wear basically whatever she wants (although mine would opt for nudity most of the time) - it shows how confident you are in your parenting.  (yes, I actually believe that - by my own logic, the stranger the child is dressed, the better the parent  Grin)

I like it too -- it is quite silly. It would be hard if it took itself too seriously but neither you, your daughter or the dress/pants combo do that. You walk a fine line with this one -- and did a fine job!

The monkey is so cute it takes one's breath away!

I really like this outfit.  I always wanted a daughter so I could dress her like the kids on Little House of the Prarie.  I say let her wear the outfit to school.  She will be the envy of all the other kids.  I know that my 5 year old niece would wear it.

ha!  Pregnant + crafty + holidays = pictures that will one day be burnt by your children.  I'm sure that's the only reason why I actually tried to make a 3 yr old wear a dress made of organza!
