The Results

So here they are:



This one is my favorite. Simple, A-line cut with a ribbon and flowers.



















This is my second favorite. It has a simple gathered skirt with trim at the bottom and of course, a bow in the back.





































I think this is her favorite. A "Fourth of July Dress". She was adamant that it had to have stripes on the red skirt, so I added trim to make the stripes. She hasn't seen the finished product yet since she was asleep when I finished it.
















These are the capris or long shorts. She really likes these and asked for more. They were actually quite simple to make once I figured them out. I sewed most of this with odds and ends of pieces I had lying around in my sewing box and used old sheets for the linings on the dresses.

I like all of them, but I think I like the 4th of July dress the best. They all turned out so cute. And I love the capris/bermudas/long shorts -- whatever they're called.

Good work at being creative and making some cute, age appropriate clothes!
