So i told my 4 yo daughter i would let her pick out fabric for a great spinny dress for spring, then i had to amend this my saying i get final 'yeah or nay'! Been there?
So we agreed on this springy stripe, which i planned on making a circle dress out of...whoops cant do that, it will have wonky stripes going every which way, so then i had to do panels instead but it turned out cute. I made the back open and cross a little cause i avoid buttons or really button holes more specifically like the plague so here it is:
Oh and my daughter saw a beautiful little girl with her hair all in braids and she wanted it too, i tried to explain it would look a little different on her but...

and the back:

i promice it actually lays flat in the back, its just the way shes holding it..
So with the leftover fabric i made her some Capri's and was trying to figure out what to make for a top when i came across this on gymboree:

so heres my version

shes hiding behind the curtain...
 and heres a closeup, the best i could of the top

and one more for good measure!

so have you have enough? I love sewing for my girls!

good call with the stripes - the panels look great.  The top looks pretty good too (isn't it nice that all these big companies put out all these lovely ideas for us home sewers to copy  Cheesy)

great job!! I love the stripes...you're right, they are really "springy"! That dress is fantastic. Love the panels, it really looks terrific. The top and capris are wonderful. Gotta love gymbo inspiration!
