I wanted to make the 'picnic dress' for my daughter but I didn't have a pattern so I just tried something.
It looks great but it is WAY to big!
It will be perfect for our Disney world trip en Disney cruise in April next year.

I made a second dress from the same fabric because we are leaving for Disneyland Paris in a week and I wanted a Disney dress for her to wear on the trip!

What do you think of my creations?
The first is the picnic dress and the second is my own design (view of the back). it has an open back and it closes with a button on the back. In front there is some shiring (think this is the right word?)
I'll try to add some action pictures tomorrow.
She hasn't had the dress on yet because she's already in bed!

tnx everybody!!!

mhkitty: for the first dress I took another dress from her and traced it onto the new fabric and sewed the pieces together.

The second dress, i took 2 big rectangles and sew them together. Ten I cut a hole in the back and put some bias around it. Make a buttonhole and put on a button so you can put it over your babies head.
In the front I sewed some lines with elastic. (don't know the wright word for this)
And then I took a bigger but more narrow rectangle piece of fabric and sewed it on the bottom of the dress.

I hope this makes sence to you.

If you want to know more I will try to help but I'm leaving on a holiday in two days.

This fabric is adorable, and the dress pattern is very nice... I'm sure your little girl will be the envy of many at Disney Smiley
