Hi, first topic!

I fell in love with this hawaiian print fabric and thought it'd make super cute sundresses for my girls. I used a ready-made dress for inspiration, but basically drafted the pattern myself. The skirt is a full circle skirt because Eldest Daughter loves twirly dresses. The bodice is self lined, with shirring in the back and ties for the straps.

Front view:



Back view (looks a little loose here but the shirring tightened up after I steamed it):



Full circle skirt (pic during first fitting):



And Youngest Daughter wanted to try it on too (yes they practically wear the same size, tho they're 2 years apart...)



Youngest daughter now has her own dress, but the skirt is just a regular gathered skirt because I didn't have enough fabric left for another circle skirt. She loved it anyway. (I don't have a pic of the second dress, but you get the idea). I'm super pleased with how these turned out and my girls love the dresses!

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Heaven forbid one of them gets a dress and the other doesn't... Luckily, they're still young enough that they think matching dresses are pretty cool.  Cheesy

So pretty!! I've been wanting to make something with a circle skirt for the bottom, but the gigantic amount of fabric it would use up keeps me from doing it!  Wink
