I just finished this for our DGD's 3rd birthday. I still want to make a matching dress for her Bitty Baby. This fabric is left over from the tea set I made for her last year.

Absolutely delightful! How perfect are those pockets...and even the buttons match the flowers! Can you share the pattern you used for this special dress?

Thanks, Ladies!! It's McCall's M5613-- http://www.joann.com/mccall-pattern-m5613-chj-7-8-1-mccall-pattern/13211263.html?gclid=CJWugKvTuNICFZFffgodQ7MDFA

I added the band at the bottom because I didn't have enough of the big flower fabric! And, I put the buttonholes on the front bodice--so the buttons on the back strap can be moved as needed as she grows.

A stunner, and I'm drooling over that floral fabric. You had some serious scraps left over to be able to make a dress from them, congratulations. I remember seeing your tea set and and still admire your work on that cute project.

Karen, did you see my post on the Doll topic about your vintage doll dresses? I'm looking for any tips you might have to help me through my own attempt at one of these patterns.
