Pretty girls should have pretty things.  Or, in the case of my beautiful girls, pretty things-that-I-cobble-together-with-no-clear-idea-of-what-I'm-doing. But this fabric was a buck a yard so here goes nothing.

Isn't she beautiful? Ack, my heart!

Step 1: Snippy snippy

Cut these pieces. Sleeves, back, fronts and skirts.
Don't clench up about not having exact measurements. There's plenty of wiggle room built into this dress since the front overlaps and can be hemmed up the front to make it smaller if needed. Just cut everything overlarge.

Absolutely adorable. You did an excellent job on the dress as well.
So cute
Awww... What a cutie! Is this the same one who got the Dice Ring? (Lucky kid!)
for posting that you have no idea how to do this - it looks amazing!!!! great job!
You made this? She is absolutely adorable!!!! And the dress is so cute! Wow - impressive!!!!
She is so cute.
Little girl, you look BEAUTIFUL!!
She is beautiful!!!! :) ❤❤❤
she's cute ^_^
Cutest ever
Let me make a suggestion to improve your skirt. I made a dance skirt for my daughter 15 years ago. Instead of cutting your two semicircles from 0 to 180 degrees, cut each piece from 0 to 270 degrees. Essentially there will be two pieces that are three quarters of a circle. <br> <br>Instead of having a just 360 degrees, the skirt will have 360 plus an additional 180 degrees. This extra material allows your daughter to do full spins with her skirt at a 90 degree angle with her legs and still have enough extra fabric in a ruffled fashion so as to hide her panties. I still bought my daughter dance panties for under her skirt since young ladies do silly things like cartwheels or hanging from monkey bars in a dress!! <br> <br>
Not my girls. They're always perfect ladies... or not.<br>That is a great suggestion. I need all the help I can get! :)
Your daughter is adorable. I hope she is impressed by your seamstressy skills!
So cute! I bet she is super happy of her new dress!
