yes!!! you are my hero! i LOVE it. my hubby has this shirt, and all i can say is that he'd better keep close watch on it.  Wink

this reminds me of a great tutorial on the recon board that i used to make a shirt for myself. of course, your dress is much cuter! Grin but maybe, for those looking for instructions, it could be adapted?

Awesome cheytown! That is pretty much exactly what I did! 

I measured my daughter's chest, and made the two bands each equal to half that length (plus 1" for sewing allowance)  for the top part.  Then I cut two large trapezoids for the bottom dress part.  I was just sure to cut the top part of the trapezoid longer than the band it would be sewn to - it leaves some room to gather.  I gathered the top of each trapezoid piece until it was the same length as the band.  Sewed them all together.  Then I had my daughter try it on so I could get an idea how long to make the shoulder straps.  After making them, I top stitched them, and sewed them to the body (probably could have done something a little neater than what I did but I like the end result.) 

Also, I didn't hem the very bottom and wasn't able to cheat using the already existing hem on the t-shirt (otherwise the robot wouldn't have been center) - I just did that trick were you zig zag stitch really close to cut to give it a lettuce edge effect.

Hope that helps!  You guys are the sweetest!

The struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' it sweet time
Life aint always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
