Thanks for posting this!  I just got that fabric like 2 weeks ago and I can't wait to finish up my current projects so I can make me one now!  I really need new dresses, I can't wait!  Was the pattern easy to work with?

If you will run the item you want to hand embrodry under your sewing machine (without thread) you can prepunch your holes.  Then it is much easier to hand sew.

When running under the machine just use the hand crank so you don't overshoot the area you want punched.

You did a great job!

Thanks for the tip!  I'm making another pair of these tonight for someone in a size 5 and I wasn't looking forward to it!  I'll try it tonight  Smiley

No, I didn't.  The yoke is too high because the straps were too short.  I redid the straps and took a picture, the last picture.  However I had my 3 yo model and the yoke is higher because the straps are a little too short on her!  LOL.  It's fits my 18 month old great though.  I just made the straps slightly longer the the old straps so they still come up high enough.

Thanks!   Smiley  Just as a FYI, this was a women's size L fitted button down shirt and the dress size was an inbetween 18 months-2T.  It barely made this size and like I said, it could also be a knee lengthed dress for my daughter who wears a 3T.  I'm think it would look so cute paired with black pants with some ribbon detailing at the bottom too...too bad it doesn't fit my 3yo.  Next dress will!

I followed the instructions from cheytown (thanks!!!), but used one of my favorite shirts that was getting too short on me.  So this is my shirt reconstructed....also my first dress ever!

The shirt:


My model was only so cooperative Smiley

This shirt has some raised lines and some silver lines.  It makes it look fancy and very girly.  Also I loved using this shirt because the back of the shirt was shaped to fit our womanely figures and it was slightly gathered in the middle which made for such a cute front to a dress.  It's hard to see it in the pictures, but the front is shaped and it has little gathers right under where I put the ribbon.   Then I added a little bow....a little too far right--oops!  My hand sewing on the ribbon wasn't so great so I added 3 tiny bells in the middle to cover it  Cheesy

Lastly, the straps were too short, which I thought they might be.  I couldn't make the straps like cheytown said because of the odd shape of my sleeves.  So when I redid them, I used the cuffs of my shirt and added the elastic.  Here is the dress on my 3 yo (it fits my 3 yo except for the straps)...but now I know that it will fit my 18 month old (she was in bed):

I'm so excited she has a new cute dress for church tomorrow!

I forgot to say, that I loved that this fits both my girls, except for the straps are too short for my 3 yo.  Next time I think I will add a button to the back so that I can adust the straps to fit both of them as my 3 yo loves this dress and wanted to sleep in it, even though it was digging into her arm pit  Cheesy

Leather can be hard to sew, but if you get the right weight, leather that's not really stretchy and use baby powder it's just fine.  It took me a while to get the tension right on my new machine though.  I have been making these for my daughter for over a year on my old crappy machine and my new machine did so much better!  This is better leather too.  Smiley

I made these last night.  I had to try out all the leather I bought yesterday.  I hand embroidered the face, which was hard to get the needle through because it was leather!  I don't know why I was thinking it would be easier then it was??  Anyways, here it is!

I used the pattern from this site:
