This is inspired by Cheytown's dress.   I didn't follow her tutorial, because I wanted to make it a little roomier for my daughter.  I took one of my husband's old shirts & made it into a sundress for my 4 year old.  I used the button front for the back of the dress & the yoke in front & back is made from the shirt cuffs.  I reuse the shirt pocket on the front of the dress to give her a pocket.  This is actually the 2nd one I made.  The first one was shite oxford-cloth that I appliqued a butterfly on.  She loves both dresses.  They are so comfortable.  Enjoy looking!
