Well, I finally got the tutorial finished!  Here is the dress I made with it.  It's a little big for the princess, so I think I am going to try to sell this one on etsy.  My pretty little manequin is her size (3T), so you can see it would be a little long on her. 

I haven't ventured into that realm before, so I will see if it will sell, I guess.  I have plenty of fabric to make another, that is for certain.  Plus, she gave me the okay, so that is what matters most LOL!  Wink

Here is the tutorial: http://thelandofka.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/halter-sundress-with-shirred-back.pdf

Here is the dress I made while doing the tutorial:





Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Thanks everyone!  Grin

I love making this style of dress, and after the first one you can just turn them out.  You can also just use the bodice as a top and not a full dress.  Just make it a little longer and hem it...or add a ruffle.  There are so many different ways you can go on it.

Isn't it cute??  I saw it at Home Goods and there was no way it was going to stay at the store after I laid my eyes on it LOL!  Last year it was about the perfect length for my girl, but she sprouted up a few inches (of course) so now I just know to put more length on it.
