I love how it turned out. It is a long dress, which is ok and she can wear it for a while. I didn't finish the other dress and before I sew up the sides, I'm going to cut the main fabric into more of an a-line shape instead of a sheath. I think I will like that even better!
Here's all of the material cut up.. I did this while sitting on the floor. Good times!
This is what I had to work around.... and yes.... I can still see my toes!!
Two of everything = twice the amount of FUN!
So, the only thing I did differently than the tutorial is that I don't do my ruffles with basting stitches anymore!.. not since I discovered the awesome and amazing way of using a wide zig-zag and a contrasting piece of thread in the middle instead! LOVE it! Okay, I love it as much as I can love sewing damn ruffles. They are a major pain in the hiney, but they are worth it for the cuteness that they add to anything! I tried to take a picture of the zig-zag/ thread in action!
And there is my little pretty!!
My sweet, beautiful, patient girl!! She is rad.
Oh, and I wasn't kidding about the Puzzle-palooza!
I would also like to add: I love Melissa & Doug products. They are superior to most of their counterparts. However, the puzzles with sounds are CREEPY!! They have been randomly going off all night long- freaking me out! I've heard sirens, roars, chirps, and barking coming from the play room all night long.. and no one is in there! Seriously, after I snapped this picture, I got a siren as I walked away... Ooooh maybe that was on purpose! Sweet. I've still got it! Yup, yup.
