Little Girl Dress from Scratch

A friend of mine has a little girl a few years older than my 4 year old and she recently gave us a few favorite hand-me-downs for enjoyment. One was a dress she had gotten from Old Navy that is very well-loved and terribly cute. I loved the style so much and wanted to figure out how to make it so that I could make one for my friend's daughter, just in a bigger size. 

Since it was July, here it is in patriotic fabric...

And I finally figured out how to do shirring. 

Yikes! Shirring was quite the learning curve! Now it's incredibly easy and I hope I can make it that way for you too.

Tutorial to follow next week.
