You did a wonderful job...be happy your little one asks for fabric (future craftster?), we had to adopt a nana buys it-it stays at nana's rule after we ended up with 2 gianormous toyboxes full and more kept coming home.  I think I'll have to convince nana to take a trip or two to the fabric store...

Thanks again.
The rose fabric was just a quilting cotton from Joann's, there's something about blue and red together that shouts buy me and use me NOW. 
I'll see what I can do about a tute, but I've never made one before so it may take a while.
As for turning it into a skirt so she can wear it longer--I love that idea.  But I can't use it on this dress (many others shall recieve such treatment) because I promised to "lend" it to my dearest friend for my unoffical neice once Miss P. outgrows it.

I stand in awe of your thrifting skills...and your amazing ability to stitch up some duds that thoroughly thrill your wee one.  It's absolutely sweet as can be.

Adorable!  It's very sweet and elegant.

Completely and utterly adorable...but where in the world do you find such wonderful sheets?

Adorable!  I love the swing-y top and double ruffles on the back.

It's very cute (love the eyelet!!) and so is the little model.  Don't worry at that age no one is still for very long unless they're sleeping--and mine even moved about in their sleep.

Thank you all so much for your very kind words.  This is my favorite thing I've made for her as of yet.  The bottom tier (the red ruffle) has a rolled hem and the circle skirt piece (roses) has a rolled hem to finish with a shell scallop crochet edging that gave me another excuse to watch A&E's Pride and Prejudice...again.  Maybe her next frock will be a regency gown.

So I got this idea in my head for a lovely little dress with an apron after seeing "some" of the nicer boutique custom things on ebay, but realizing that $100 a dress was definately out of my price range I came up with this

and here's a closer picture so you can see the embroidered rose (my first embroidery project since I was 8.

It's basically just a circle skirt over a tiered skirt (for fluffyness and twirlability) with a basic bodice.  It buttons in the back with a fabric covered button--but no pics of that since I don't like the buttonhole and think that the next on will get one of those little loops you put a button through instead.  She loves it, I only wish I'd used a little more ease in the bodice so that she could wear it longer.  She sunburns fairly easy so it's usually worn over a tee, but it still looks nice when not.  It didn't really take long to make either with the exception of gathering the tiers and then crazy woman that I am decided that it would look really cute with a crocheted edging around the circle skirt...four hours later, I needed some sleep and a hand massage.

Thanks for the compliments.  I used the freezer paper method, so I had to trace my final design onto the paper.  I started with a wallpaper graphic from http://www.zelda.com/universe/gallery/ (second one down on the right), turned it B/W, printed and traced.  I left out some of the details like the definition of the wood slats on his shield but I still like the way it turned out.  Hope that helps.
