New Dress

I started making Penelope a dress last night based off of the tutorial that Disney has over at Ruffles and Stuff.  I was able to finish it up today and even have Penelope wear it too.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and it was very easy.  The shirt part though has a pink stain in a funky spot and I haven't quite decided how I want to cover it up.  So, what do you think?
I started just like Disney said to, with a stained shirt

then I measured the width, which was conveniently 10 inches

Since it was 10 inches across, I used fabric that was 40 inches so that I could gather it up and also have it go all the way around. I also added a little fabric at the bottom for some fun.  The length of the skirt part was 9 inches then the accent part was 3 inches.  I used Amy Butler material and love it!

A little side note, Penelope took 5 steps while I took these pictures and she's 13 months old today :)


  1. Wow! That is really cute! Disney has a lot of creative stuff on her wonder you like it so much!

  2. SO cute!! I'm totally impressed that you tried it so quickly! And I see that you must have figured out the step that I completely forgot to include in my tutorial (sewing the sides of the skirt together!) oops! :o)

  3. Congrats on 5 steps Penelope!!!! Wow, that is so fast! She must be trying to keep up with her brothers! Erin, the dress is so sweet! I'm so proud of your work! Love you!~Meg

  4. I love it!!! Wish I knew you when Lauren was a baby and I could have used some of her clothes longer.
