I work at TJX and when I saw this dress in our stores I absolutely fell in love with the print. Sadly it was only made for toddlers and young girls so if I ever wanted to have one of my own I needed to make it myself. Of course that wasn't such a big hurdle!  Grin

I bought two of the dresses from Marshalls in the same size and took them apart, only keeping the skirts, waist tie and zipper. The rest was fabric from my stash and some self drafted patterns.

I work in the department that designed the original dress and when I wore it in to work everyone was doing a double take. It was awesome  Grin



And the original dress:

Too awesome! I can't even count how many times I've walked past a section of little girl clothes and think they're the cutest fabrics and how I wish I could wear them. I think you've solved my problem! Cheesy
