I quilt, therefore I am...

So, I was gifted a HUGE box of fabric from my friend. A lot of it was great for quilting, but some of it boggled my brain as to what to do with it.

My dear daughter picked up one 2 yard piece and insisted that I make a dress for her out of it...  I agreed, but it then sat around the house for several months while I thought about what I was going to do with it to make a dress...

I decided on a twirly dress, because she's three, and loves to be the center of all that is the universe. LOL.

So, with no real pattern in mind, I set to work with an old shirt for a guide on how big she was. Four hours later, I had the dress done and on her and she refused to take it off.









Enjoy!

Super cute and well loved.  I always wanted a good "twirly" dress.  Nice job!

She desperately wanted to sleep in it. LOL! We had a minor malfunction with the ribbon about 2-3 hours after she wore it, so I had to get it off her to fix it. I forgot to knot the ribbons onto the elastic around the neckline, to make sure it didn't come unfrayed and pop off.

It's fixed now, though. LOL.
