I have a little cousin that's turning 3 and I am absolutely set on making her a little princess costume that she can prance around in. I want to make sure her imagination is getting it's excersize!

Have any of you talented craftsters used any of the countless toddler dress patterns? Especially the fancy ones... although I'm not looking for anything too difficult. If so, which ones? If you have pics, even better!

Thanks so much!

I am make tons of princess dresses, I can't recommend any particualr pattern.  I find it easier to make the top and skirt separate for mix and match.  my avatar has a pic of my oldest wearing one of her dresses.

Hello!
A friend of mine got married around this time last year. She wanted my 5-year-old to be her flower girl in her Renaissence-themed wedding, and she gave me some light blue suede-like fabric to make her dress out of. I was a fashion design major in college about 10 years ago (in 1994), but a month after I returned home for the summer, I went through a horrible family tragedy. I never returned to school and put away my sewing machines (I also stopped drawing and crafting - self-punishment, maybe?). So, I dusted off my sewing machine and came up with this  - the first thing I've sewn in 10 years (my daughter is a little bit taller than last year, that's why you can see her feet!):





I used Simplicity #5909. The smallest size they have is size 3. I'm going to make one for my soon-to-be three-year-old, too! I'll post pics.

Fixed! Thanks for the tip!!

I can't see the pics.  Have you tried photobucket or craftsters picture hosting?  Those work well.  Then again, maybe its just my computer, I am having some issues. 

Wish I could see them. 

And also, now that you have dusted off your sewing machine I hope you use it lots!  Welcome "Back"!

Menget!  That is awesome!  I would have been insane in a dress like that when I was a kid--probably would have demanded to wear it everywhere.  Cheesy   The sleeves are tremendous.  It makes me want to start a Halloween costume now as an excuse to wear something like that.  I'm glad you came back to sewing!  I'm sure your kids are too.

Thanks for the warm fuzzies, guys!! I think I'm going to be sewing a lot more from now on. The jacket is my favorite part, and it was really easy to make. The dress wasn't too difficult. I just hate putting in zippers - they never come out looking quite right.
She loves playing dress up in it, and she'll wear it all day if I let her. At the wedding, she wore fairy wings (made from white, iridescent organza) that were taller than she was. She also wore it to a Renaissence Fair and got to meet "The Queen". Fancy, smancy!
