I put this in the kids' board, since I made my dress years ago.  I saved a scrap of the fabric, hoping against hope that I'd be blessed with a little girl in the coming years.  Well, that little girl was born 12/15/11 with her brother, and now that they've started napping regularly (at the same time!) I have actually had a little time to sew.  The pattern is the Comfy Jumper Dress from Amy Butler's "Little Stitches for Little Ones".  I have my beef with the lack of diagrams in the book (and as someone else has pointed out, there is no photo of the front of this dress in the book!), but I was able to read the instructions and make the dress in two nap-times.  Mine is also an Amy Butler pattern -- the mini dress.  I made the 3-6 month size, and it fits her now, even though she's still wearing 3 month sizes in store-bought clothing. 



And with her mama:

Nope, not sequins, just a complementary fabric I picked up to "stretch" the scrap I had.
