So, did you use a pattern for this one?

I LOVE IT.

Abigail is jealous that her mom doesn't have such talent.

Dani is gorgeous. No dress could ever match her beauty, but you came close. :)

I love the colors, and did you notice that your blog topper matches the dress too.

Simple and sweet. I love that you followed her cues and both of you love it.

Dani is so pretty. I love the dress, especially the inverted pleat at the top and the red belt. So adorable. I would actually wear this dress if I wanted to wear a dress on just my right thigh.

I didn't use a pattern Ashley, sorry. I'm impatient with patterns. I got one of her tee-shirts and copied the measurements of that, and then added on a skirt. It was way too short at first, so we added the white stripe. And the pleat in the front was because the neckline puckered. And what do you do to a pucker? You pleat.
