The only problem with sewing for 2 girls, is that the 3rd one will pipe in at the end, "But I wanted my dress that way, too!  Cry "   As she wads up the twirly sundress and stuffs it under the bed in disgust.   T_T *sighs* And so it continues...lol.

These were pretty easy, but what isn't when it's just a big tube in the end, right? Will be doing more of these for the summer as play dresses for sure.

They came out great and your girls are adorable! How long did they take... minus the inevitable interruptions?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks - without interruptions, I'd say about an hour for the 2 dresses, and another 30 minutes for the 4 straps (I'm still getting used to this sewing stuff).

Once I figured out the tension and how tightly to hand wind the bobbin, it was definately easier.

Can you tell me what pattern you used (if you did use one)?  Or can you tell me how you came up with the dress?  I was thinking of trying shirring too!
