After finishing curtains for my niece's bedroom (of which, of course, I forgot to take pictures) I decided to try my hand at a dress for her. I picked up the pattern for only a dollar at a great sale at JoAnn Fabrics. The material was from a skirt that mom had started making for me at least twenty years ago, that, for whatever reason, never got finished. I love black watch plaid, but the skirt was cut out in a size I haven't seen in many years.
I was really happy with how this dress came out. It was a fairly simple pattern. The plaids matched up nicely on the sides and the skirt has just the right amount of flounce.
Our model, however, was a bit temperamental and didn't want anything to do with the photo session!
