Teeny Tiny Dress

While watching the High School Musical: Get in the Picture competition last night on tv (I know, I know- but for some reason CB and I saw an episode last week and it hooks you... It was that or American Gladiators finale, because we didn't know to watch for Jon on the Teen Choice Awards until it was over, oops...), I made this itty bitty dress last night. We lost our camera (hopefully momentarily) so unfortunately, my phone pictures will be up until we find it. This dress took me about 2 hours to make and I love it! The fabric has a funky vibe and I love the effect in dress form. This dress is probably newborn size- I couldn't even get it over Caleb's Cabbage Patch Kid's head. I will probably adjust this pattern and try to make it larger, I already know what fabric I'll try next.

Claire, oh my gosh, that is beautiful! I love it! The fabric and the piping --- everything! Again, making a dress like that would take me forever! I can't believe you made it in 2 hours. You belong on Project Runway!

Awesome! I love that dress!! Where did you get the pattern? Don't tell me you made it up because then I'll just die...

P.S. I hope you don't mind that I am putting a link to your blog on mine.

Dear Aunt Claire,
If given the choice, I would certainly watch American Gladiators over High School Musical.
Love,
Thomas
