Okay, I am really proud of this project, I don’t know why – maybe just because my kids look so dang cute. 🙂 I was given lots of fabric scraps and had 1 yard of each print and a few yards of lace. I didn’t have a pattern, but I knew what I wanted to do with it. Here is what I came up with. Enjoy. 🙂
Step 1: Fold fabric so that 1/2 of the width of the dress will fit, place the center of the dress on the fold.
Step 2: I took one of my daughter’s shirts and laid it on the fabric as a guide for cutting out the arm holes.
Step 3: Take the two pieces and lay them with prints on the inside and sew the seams.
Step 4: Take the second piece of fabric and use your first piece as a pattern. But make sure your apron layer is about 2-3 inches wider than the dress layer to give you room for ruffles or pleats.
