I didn't use a pattern, just gathered a few inspirations and winged it.  I think it turned out really pretty, but I am not sure I would do the bib where the buttons are that way again.  Two rectangles of fabric, pleated, sewed at the top and at the belt, but the pleats themselves aren't sewed down so it makes the cool little poofy in the back and front when she moves sometimes.  Oh and afterward we had to taper it in at the armpits by about 1 apples-width because it ws too baggy, and apprently it was too much, so its a little snug now, but thats allright.  Miss A wore it to her playschool "graduation" and promptly sat on her butt on the cold gym floor with her feet up in the air twirling herself around like a lazy susan (my daughter is very classy, can't you tell?).  The curls in her hair are courtesy of some rag rollers (aka my old t-shirt).

DD is adorable! Aww rag curls, that takes me back. Mom mom use to use sponge rollers on me for years. Love this dress, its so unique! Look at all those lovely pleats Kiss. I just finished my 2nd Pleatness bag so I know how fun pleats are to make Wink. Great job!
