My grand daughter in her dress.

Here are a few pictures of a dress for my grand daughter. She loves the dress and receives many compliments on it, and even a couple of custom orders for dresses.  Of course with a hem like that I had to have her twirl a little bit.  Initially she saw the fabric while I was making a top for me and she said, "mmm...I'd like a dress out of that material".  So...I pretended not to pay attention and surprised her with the dress.

The fabric is a polyester jersey, and for the life of me I can't remember wehre I bought it online and I got it a a very good price - as I recall I purchased 5 yards because I like the design of the fabric. I used a New Look pattern that is at least a few years old.  I used a size 10, but used 1/4 inch seam allowances to allow for a larger size.  Hopefully the pattern is not out of print because she likes the style and wants another dress made with a different color scheme and design.
