I love the little denim dresses for girls at the moment, but the ones I like are $40.00, thats how much one would cost for me!  So I dug out the piece of denim I have been saving for something, was going to be a skirt for myself, but I probably never would have gotten around to sewing it anyway.  Here is the link to the one I liked at Pumpkin Patch http://images.pumpkinpatchkids.com/W10/IM/Flatshots/toddler_girls/138527_den_LGE.jpg  
And here is the one I made.



Please don't look too closely to see if my decorative stitching is symmetrical, because it isn't.   Cheesy  But I had sewed it together before I realised... And the collar is a little dicky, and I'll do the front facing different next time, so there isn't a seam so obvious.  And the skirt should be a little fuller.  But these are the things you don't find out until the end.
I do love the way the sleeves came out, they are my favourite part, and the belt.

Thanks for looking and C &C welcomed
