First, just want to say--cute kid!  Thanks for sharing photos!
Second, I had a Simplicity pattern years ago that was this same dress.  I loved it and made many of them, so I'm happy to find this link.  Thanks for posting it!

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

dude-i'm so going as a pirate cinderella this year.

also- those little dresses make me wish this next baby is a girl so i can make 100s of them.  and it inspired me to use this same idea for myself only as a maternity top-since i will be pregnant ALL summer and i can only imagine how much fun that will be .

you daughter is beatiful and she looks like she loves her dresses. i love the embroidered one. was that a pillowcase? gorgeous

Rostitchery, or anyone who might have a clue......I've been thinking about this pattern and wondering how well it would work if I were to cut the pattern into more of an a-line shape as opposed to the rectangular shape?
Because I have these oh-so-wonderful "hip shelves" nowadays, that I'm sure would only be emphasized by the original cut!! And, well....the 1st time around that I made this dress, I was a size 12, and now I'm a 20!!
Would it necessarily have to be cut on the bias that way?
My gears are working overtime on sewing ideas these days...and now that i have my digital camera software working again, I'll actually be able to provide pictures! Yay!!
Thanks for the help!!

I think that pattern would make a really comfortable summer top too - I just might have to try it.

soon enough, i'm pretty sure she'll put in her order for something extravagantly tacky like a pirate cinderella.

i was so a pirate cinderella when i was four! and yes, it was extravagantly tacky - the exact kind of tacky that makes it a four year old's favorite dress ever and insists on wearing it every day, every where. Wink

not a pirate, but i think a cowboy cinderella is in the same spirit.  Cheesy

I was just looking at the dress pattern and I understand that the cord is used for the straps but when and where do I attach them?  Dumb question I know but I thougt  I would ask.

the cord is not attached, it is run thru the casings at the top of each panel.
