I love the print of this! And I think that pocket is just the right addition!

As for the little model, DH saw her pic while peeking over my shoulder. He is smitten and wants a girl soooooo bad!

Adorable! And I love the pocket.  Cheesy

I thought the plant looked like a fern, so I googled it and it seems that it may be an Asparagus Fern, and now I want one.  Cheesy

It is so cute.  How did you do the sleeves.  I am trying put sleeves on a pillowcase dress I made but so far I haven't found any that I like on it.  I tried ribbon didn't like it.  I like the ones you have on your dress though please let me know how you did them.  Your dress looks so prissy. I love it.

Yes! That's it...asparagus fern. It's really soft. I picked up a baby that had gotten uprooted by the lawn care guys and put it in a pot. Seems to be a slow grower, but it hasn't died yet!

I would have used cheytown's tutorial for the sleeves too, but since this shirt was originally sleeveless, I had to improvise.

I thought someone might wonder what I did for sleeves, so I actually took some pictures while I was going...
I used the lower part of the back of the shirt that was left over after I cut out the main part. I folded it in half and drew a line with my trusty ruler.


Then I cut it in half on the fold and shaped the two pieces like this:



The already-hemmed edge became the outer edge of the ruffle. I turned down the other edge (which in this case is quite curvy unlike cheytown's tutorial's sleeves) about 1/2" and made a casing for elastic. I used quarter inch elastic and constructed the rest of the sleeve pretty much like the tutorial.

Since the second dress I made was from a shirt that had short sleeves (as opposed to sleeveless like the first one) and since I used the lower portion of the front for the sleeves, I used the shirt's sleeves to make a pair of coordinating shorts. (DD does NOT know how to keep her dress down yet!)



I sewed the sleeves together:


Turned down the top and ran a bit of elastic through it:


Et voila! Cute little shorts that are already hemmed! :-)

No action shot yet.

smashing! and how brave you are to use silk. it's beautiful. the sleeve shorts are fab - i think they need to be added to the tute list. the sleeves on the second dress are adorable. how did you do those?

I know this reply is a little late, but I was looking at all my DS's (trying to sound like I know the lingo. Is it working?) posts, and I have to say, I love how modestly you dress your DD, who is, by the way, perfectly adorable!  Cheesy  I mean, you could just shrug it off that the dress is a little low and that she doesn't know how to keep her dress down yet, cuz she is still just a wee thing, but instead you make sure she is completely decent. What an excellent idea! I bet it'll really make a difference later on when you want her to go from being a modest little girl to a modest young lady. I applaud you.  Smiley
