I love both these fabrics.  I modified a pattern I inherited from my Grandma (Simplicity 8544).  This actually only vaguely resembles what I had originally pictured in my head.  They are a little big, but hopefully that means the girls can wear them longer. 



I love my ruffler-foot.  Wouldn't have even attempted this without it.  My ruffler-foot didn't like being fed taffeta.  But I made it stay at the machine until it finished everything on its plate! 



Normally I don't condone looking up  skirts.

I love those! I would totally wear one and it looks perfect for a nice spring dress. Awesome job and you taught that ruffler foot a lesson.

I wanted to make one for me, but was simply done when I finished these.

Gorgeous dresses! How old are the 'models'?

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.

The girls are both about standard 8-yo size.

Not that I condone looking up skirts, but I love the underskirts for these dresses, it kind of makes me want one, do you think it's appropriate for an adult?
