Hi there beautiful craftsters,

Just wanted to show you all my newest dress. Its so sweet and simple, and nice and cool for my little bean cause it is sooooo hot here!!!

Pretty basic a-line shape with a ruffle along the bottom, a braided detail along the top and tie strings. Finished off with a cute ruffley flower. I left some of the edges unfinished so it will fray a little over time. Anyway here is some pics thanks to my sweet little model Smiley





Thanks for looking!

 Grin Thanks so much guys!!

Thats what I thought too!! She is having a lollipop themed party for her 1st birthday very soon, so she could wear this!

No sorry, it was just a make it up as I went along kinda thing. Really simple though. If you just trace one of her dresses to get the right size and the bottom ruffle is just a long rectangle only hemmed on the bottom and then gathered and sewed onto of the dress. Cut some strips and plait them together and sew along the top and I went all the way around the sleeves with the homemade bias tape and kept going to make the straps Smiley Let me know if you want some clearer pics of the dress without the baby in it Smiley
