Shirtwaist dresses are so fun!

When I saw this little girl print at JoAnn’s I thought it was just perfect for a novelty print shirtwaist dress.

And this outfit wouldn’t be nearly as fun without my new me-made giant crinoline! More details on my blog.

  1. OK, that is just too cute for words! Isn’t being able to sew and make your own super-incredibly-awesome clothing fantastic?

  2. Shut UP! My girls’ Easter dresses a few years back were made from that very fabric. I still have yards and yards of it left. Why haven’t I made it into a dress for myself? Maybe I will!
