I so have no plans to take the troops to JoAnn's to flip through pattern books for all eternity, so this plan was waiting for a someday trip alone. Enter Peek-a-Boo Patterns. She's offering a free girl dress pattern (size 3 mo to 8) on her site. It was cute and I had fabric so I thought it was the perfect dress to start the revolution.
For a first go at a dress, it's certainly wearable. It's doesn't look "home made" in a bad way. And it's purple, even if it was awful, Pie would love it.
