Last night I whipped up a little halter dress for my daughter's first day of preschool on Monday...(pause to wipe away a tear). I used Simplicity 5531 for a pattern. On the front of the pattern it said "Easy to Sew" and this time it was actually true! I did it in about an hour, after cutting it out. We had a little photo shoot, which she loves. She does lots of twirling, which makes it hard to get a good pic. :)
I made some bias tape out of the red and white polka dot fabric and sewed it around the bottom. You can only see a peek of it in these pics. I like the way it finished off the dress.
