I'm so glad it fits her...and It actually went to someone that really likes (and appreciates) it.  I second that the swap went really well.   Grin Cheesy

These are awesome.  Thanks for the tute.    Cheesy

I have the same exact fabric too.  For those who don't, I can definetly say the fabric is even more cute in person.

I've never attempted making clothing from a pattern before, so I tried out this (the dress seen in the middle).  Its a vintage pattern (1963), in excellent shape.

Its an (a-line?) pleated dress, and buttoned in the back.  I think I used about a yard of a pretty cotton.  It was alot easier than I expected.  The pleats proved to be troublesome, but thats only because the pattern assumed you knew about pleats and I knew nothing about them.  One thing is for sure, I think I'll avoid using single wide bias tape at all costs.  Not fun stuff to work with.

The front pleat

The back

The worst thing is, I have no one model it or anyone to gift this too.  I cannot think of any girls ages 1-3 that would fit in a size 2 dress.  I really can't.  Not one.  So, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this.

Comments, questions, and criticism are always welcome.

I will note, it isn't really bunched up like that.  Thats just the way it was hanging on the hanger.  Excuse the blurry pictures.  I will try to post some better pictures taken during the daytime.  Oh, and the faint letters you see, thats just some chalk markings I made to help myself out.  I will be washing them out.

I've casted on for this.  I'm using Berroco softwist that I picked up for cheap.  The ribbing is taking a long time...sheesh.

You could always wear it over a pair of jeans or pants.  I'm not sure if thats considered fashionable or what not.  Some people like dress over pants, some don't.  But, it would allow you to wear it in the winter and still have it as a summer dress when it gets warm enough.

My grandmother has one that looks very similar.  Though I am not sure of its year.

I would say grape, or blue raspberry.  As beckey23 said, the grape looks sophisticated.
