This dress is definitely not my brainchild. I saw it first on pinterest and followed it back to it's owner pecan-sandies . A friend also pinned it as something she wanted for her daughter. She's not a sewer, my daughter doesn't do dresses well and so I immediately knew I would be making it for her.
The idea rolled around in my head, I went out and bought the fabric, cut it into squares and stalled. A month passed before I was motivated to start working again. I sewed all of the strips together, ruffled and made a big trapezoid before I stalled again. I couldn't wrap my head around how to do the lining. A few months later and my friend's daughter was nearing her first birthday. So I figured I better get my butt in gear LOL.
She turned one on Monday and fortunately this dress is 18-24 months (to allow maximum twirling time). I'm crossing my fingers that my friend will take some pictures of Isla spinning and let me post them here!
