I made these dresses for my ex-fiance's nieces.
His sister had the idea, and asked me if I minded making them.
They were really simple.

I did a sort of accordion fold with the flag skirts, sewing the right sides together,
and then, after that, I sewed the blue top to them.
The straps were adjustable, with several button holes, and buttons on each side, which ended up STILL being too big for them. haha.

But, after that, his sister drew stars on to the tops with pencil and traced over it with white fabric marker. So, I think they came out really quite well.
And little girls are definitely much easier to dress than larger people. Haha.

Too cute. I'd stick a white turtleneck under the dress and have the girls wear them on Veteran's Day too, just to get as much use as possible out of them. I'm impressed that the white fabric marker covered up the blue fabric so well.

Patriotica doesn't always work as clothing, but this is right up there with Craig Ferguson's American-themed kilt.
