I only started sewing a month ago, and have only made a few bibs and a hat prior to this dress. It is a bit big, but otherwise I think it turned out alright with no major dramas. Little miss usually don't wear dresses, but didn't mind this one (probably because it is short enough to allow for climbing, crawling and riding bikes etc.
The dress is made from a vintage 70's sheet and lined with a piece of off white cotton from one of our bed sheets (I didn't have anything else suitable at home. Don't tell my husband...). Buttons from Spotlight. The pattern is a vintage Simplicity pattern, bought off eBay. This was a good first "proper"item to sew, as it was easy for a beginner!!!
