I never have made a dress before, but thought now was a good time to try. My niece turned 5 a few weeks ago, and she loves dresses. I saw a great tutorial online for a nice, tiered pillowcase dress. The Polkadot Chair put together a lovely tutorial! The instructions were easy and the end product looked great! I used a Connecting Threads line called Hope Chest and the weight of the cotton fabric was perfect for a dress.
Here she is! I was nervous that the dress wouldn't fit, but thankfully it does! She will just have to wear tights and a shirt under it due to the cold weather.
i am just finishing up a quilt top center and will post a picture soon!
