Larisa, the dress looks absolutely lovely on your DD. Amazing what we can do with retired clothing! I certainly have a closet full of fabric I should re-use rather than purchasing more! Great review.

This is a really cute dress. I have previously made the jacket from this pattern and have been thinking of using this pattern for an Easter dress. Glad to know it goes together beautifully.

Larisa that dress is wonderful and you should have had your daughter model it since she is the cutest child ever!! Great job!

What an adorable dress! I love your fabric choices and I love how you recycled other garments for this dress. What a great idea!

Wow, what a very cute dress!! You did great on this one, Larisa. Your daughter will LOVE it-- SO hard to believe that it's from recycled dresses!

I like the collar and the sleeve choice. Great job.
Larisa said... (2/6/07 2:26 PM) Reply
thanks both of you! Believe it or not, my darling son (almost7) helped me pick out the original dresses. I was drawn to the plaid for myself, but DH rejected it . The DS started finding several dresses that would coordinate with the colors in the plaid....we decided DD would look better in the purples than in the lime green :-)

Looks great, Larisa! I think your solution of making the vertical panels on the skirt really works well. And the colors all coordinate so nicely.

This came out really cute - neat idea too use the originals that way.
