I whipped this dress up in an hour using two quilt squares, some remnants, and one foot of elastic.  The whole thing cost about $3.50 and fits my 24-month sized One year old daughter.

Halter Top Back


Front ( which was hard to get.)


I whipped up a little tute per request after offering.  It only consists of 8 pieces, two of which are linings, and 4 are strap pieces.  Great for novice sewers.




The best way I would go about measuring pieces for your dress is to take an existing dress and measure width and length.  Mark where the arm opening ends to give yourself a base to cut.  Trace half the dress, fold and cut so your piece is symmetrical.  Make sure to keep your shoulder straps at least an inch wide PLUS sewing allowance.  Oh, and the yellow on the Tute is the Elastic.  You'll need about 8-12 inches.

I would love a tutorial!  My daughter is (a small) almost 24 months, and I've wanted to start making clothes for her.  They are so much more unique, and there are so many great fabrics!  Also, I must say that dress and fabric (and your model) are adorable! Smiley

Thanks for the tute - I might have to give it a try! If I actually do, I'll post a pic.

Well done tute! Thanks!

(Do you happen to know how to make the different sizes if you don't have a garment to model it after? My granddaughter lives many hours from here, and isn't available for fittings!)

Thanks for the tute!  I am expecting a little girl in August and she needs one (or several) of these--maybe for next summer.

I can hardly get over how cute your DD is to even comment on the dress! She's an angel & looks so adorable in that outfit! The colors really suit her!

This is very cute. Your daughter is so stinkin cute. I might have to try this one. I'm always a little reluctant to try the open back style. I think I need to stop being so closed minded. I worry about my daughter getting sun burned too.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Oh no! I totally understand that!  My DD is nearly all polish on her fathers side, and I am VERY pale, I have sun allergies. I get hives! 

I would recommend getting Coppertone Waterbabies SPF 70 ( like $10.00)
My DD and I both use it!
