Flutter Sleeve Dress

This week I stumbled across a great tutorial and pattern for a cute girlie top at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom and decided to use it as a starting point for a dress for my goddaughter who is celebrating her 2nd birthday this month.

I pretty much followed the tutorial to the word. The only differences were placing the bodice pattern piece just over an inch from the fold, since this is for a smaller child than the tutorial is designed for. And obviously, wanting a dress, I extended the length, following the A-line shape as set by the bodice pattern piece.

I started out with exactly half a yard of fabric and it was just enough to make the dress, with a little left over for a hairband and yoyo flower.
