SWOON! Any chance you can show us how you did it so that it wasn’t too loose up top, and those great sleeves? This is so beautiful!

This is amazing! I just started following your blog and I love the stuff you do. I am inspired to give sewing another try … I used to do more of it, but I’ve been working almost entirely with paper for some time and I think I’m ready to give cloth another try. I just can’t stay away from the beautiful fabrics, thrift store possibilities and ideas like this one!! I don’t have children to sew for (yet!), but I’d still love it if you’d share how you made this dress. I’ll bookmark it for when the time comes. :-)

How incredibly adorable! Now I just need a little girl to make it for!

Would you believe I have the EXACT same cowboy boots this little girl is wearing from when I was 5 years old? (glad my Mom kept them, so I can pass them on!)

Love your ideas! I definitely want to try this one for my little daughter. Right now she is only 8 months, so I have lots of time to practice. Or I could try a little girl’s skirt transformed to a baby dress!
