More dress pictures

So as you know, photography is not my forte.
She liked the ribbon trim on the dress.

 Kids goofing around!

 It's all fun.

Dress challenge

Is this not one of the cutest dresses ever.
It is really hard to find cute patterns for girls
I got it here:
This gal has several real cute patterns.
And she is having a contest so I thought I would give it a try.
 So here is my version.
The pattern only goes to size 8 so I had to
re-draft it to a size 10.
All my girls are getting bigger!!
Sure wish they would just stop that.
I gave myself a second challenge.
To use what I had. (No going to the store.)
This is a poly/cotton fabric purchased at Wallmart
several years ago.

 Also, I had to add a slit into the skirt of the dress
so it is easier to get on.

I made pillowcases for the girls.
Last summer I made them new curtains for their bedrooms,
so I used the same fabric for their pillowcases.
I used poly/cotton broadcloth.
The less ironing I have to do, the better.
