|The embellishments make a plain outfit dressy enough for a special event, from church to a wedding.|
Want to know how to make one for your darling? Here's what you'll need and how to do it:
Approximately 1/2 to 1 yard jersey/knit fabric
1 to 2 yards embellishment
Matching thread, scissors, tailor's chalk/fabric marker, measuring tape, etc
1. Measure your child's high waist, chest, shoulder to high waist and high waist to desired length of dress. Cut two skirt pieces using the child's high waist and high waist to desired length measurements. Cut two bodice pieces using the chest and shoulder to high waist measurements (cut the neckline for the front lower than the back and make sure the circumference of the front and back bodice necklines will fit over your child's head). Finally, cut two cap sleeve pieces by tracing a circle and cutting it in half.
4. Hem base of sleeves.
