For Madeline's dress It's just a rectangle folded in half and sewn together along the side. I then folded the top down 6" and shirred. For the sleeves I attached two rectangles to the top and shirred 4 rows. I added the bows because It was a little plain without them.
I took photos for an hour and this is the best I got for our Christmas card! Oh well, we are still getting lots of wear out of these.
I was told I could never pull off this polka dot fabric for boys. I have to admit it concerned me a little but I really wanted them to wear some color for a change. What do you think? Can boys wear polka dots?
