|Here is the dress. Oops I already cut it when I remembered to take the pic.|
I just fell in love with it. It works so well with the pink of the dress which has small flowers embroidered at the top.
I took the length of the skirt that came with the dress and added 3 inches to it for good coverage. Then I just cut out a rectangle of that 17" by 36". Then I sewed a quick basting stitch along the top of the rectangle and gathered it so that it was the same circumference as the bodice. Then put the bodice over the dress right sides together and sewed with a zigzag all the way around. To make it a very easy project I used the selvage for the bottom for a nice and easy construction.
That is it for the dress.
The skirt was equally easy. All I did was cut a piece of elastic. I got mine from Ruffle Fabric.com. My piece of elastic was 19" long, about 1" greater then her waist size. Overlap the elastic about 1/2" and use a zigzag to sew them together. Then I just sewed the elastic right on the skirt. And voila!
