E and I went to the fabric store and I said she could pick any 2 fabrics for her dress. This is what she picks..
Haha.. tell me these fabrics don't remind you of Blanche Deverou from Golden Girls? I kept trying to convince her that there were other fabrics.. but nope.. she was smitten with these. :) So I reluctantly agreed and took the fabric home (oh by the way cost less than $10). So here's what I came up with.
Here's a closeup of the binding. Because there was a slight stretch to the fabric, I used a stretch stitch to bind the waistband to the main body.
My husbands first words in reaction to me was, "What is it?" haha. After I told him, he said, "Oh.. ok.. E is going to be so excited when she sees it!" I almost want to wake up her to try it on, but I will be a good mom and let her sleep. Until tomorrow baby... it will be like Christmas morning.
Edit: So I showed E the dress this morning and she went crazy over it. I'm telling you mamas... if you can sew, you DEFINITELY have to make one of these for your little girls! Here's a few pictures of the different ways you can wear it.

|I don't know what to call this..|
|But here's the back of it.. maybe the criss cross?|
|I have no more caption ideas, but you get the jist. :)|
|Different kind of skirt|
She's such a ham.. haha. By the end she was getting tired of me taking pictures so I had to stop. Anyway, hope you like it! Go and make one now! :)
