This dress was made using the same pattern as the pink patchwork one I made, I really am in love with this pattern right now.  I was worried the sheet would be too see-through, but the top facing and interfacing makes it just right.  (You can just barely make out the line in these photos.)

I used 1" shell buttons again, I just think they're so pretty on little girl clothes.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I'm pretty excited, it's a full sized sheet and this little bitty dress barely used a corner's worth.  (And the top has this fancy scalloped border thing happening, it should make an awesome dressy dress or something super fancy.)  Cheesy

Very pretty! I would never ever guess it came from a sheet at all. You did a really good job on it.

Is the dress your own pattern?

No.  I used NewLook 6576.  I found it at WalMart a few weeks ago, so (hopefully) it should still be in stock.  (I don't know how often they rotate their patterns.)

I love that pattern. It was my first sewing project from a pattern ever when I made it last summer.

That said, I adore the shell buttons. So pretty and girly.
