My daughter's Easter dress!

The bow and collar binding.
I love pleating, so I pleated the sleeves rather than gathered them.

Here's the back view.

The front sash and carrot charms.

The front.
I just LOVE how it turned out! I saw this fabric at JoAnn's a while back and it stuck in my mind. After a couple more visits to JoAnn's, I couldn't get it out of my mind! I just HAD to make a dress out of it!
Now, I have lined up a ladybug dress and a Beatrix Potter dress.

I absolutely LOVE it!!! She is going to look absolutely perfect in it--you should get pictures done with her in that dress and your son in overalls and a straw hat!!
