My beautiful neice who I don't get to see anywhere near enough started daycare recently, she calls it froggy school because there is a big frog on the sign.

I made up these dresses for her out of second hand shirts...some mine, some from a second hand shop. Pattern by Lil Blue Boo Sienna Dress. They are very bright and she loves them.

My sister (her Mother) works in a studio so she got these pics for me.
Be prepared for cuteness overload ( not that I am biased or anything Cheesy )











Thanks for looking!!!

So cute! She is just loads of cuteness, and I love the Tink dress (the other one, too, but Tink!).

Your niece is super adorable!  I bet she could even rock a paper sack.  But these dresses are just too too cute.  Great job!

 Grin Grin Grin Thanks so much pretty ladies! I sent all your sweet comments onto my sister too so she could share in all the love!

It is a great pattern and so easy to do, I would just recommend to get some ribbed knit for the neckline. Hours of frustration before I figured that out!
