Hey there beautiful craftsters,

I have made a couple of these dresses from Little bird patterns, but given them away as gifts so I just have one left to show you. Its such a pretty dress! and for my daughter who is 10mths, it only costs me about $4 (Aus) to make one. Cheap Cheap Cheap!! The original pattern had tie straps so I altered it a little to make button straps. I love this fabric, it looks like old fashioned birdcages, but is a little floral design.

This photo shows how full the skirt is.





and the only thing I sewed on this tutu was the elastic, but I thought I would put it on anyway Smiley



Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much everyone!!

Yes it is a really easy dress to make and the instructions are clear...except one little bit on the back of the bodice, I stuffed it up everytime I made it. Which could just be my fault, but it isn't that clear on the instructions... also they dont allow for seams in the pattern so you have to remember to add them when cutting. But the dress is gorgeous and I think its worth it in the end.

yeah thats a great pattern for such a low cost! i can never afford patterns since they are $10! I spend less than that on fabric!
BTW I love your signature Bec, so inspirational!
