    Lately my family has needed reminding that I am a quilter not a seamstress. But how can you resist a smile like that one and a beautiful model? It came out great, she looks beautiful. Enjoy!

    Oh, how I can relate to your situation. I had to redo a junior bridesmaid dress from a Junior 10 to a girls size 10 for our granddaughter, which wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the style of dress. Came out like a charm, thankfully. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job. Cute princess. You are the lucky one. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to alter a teens cheerleader outfit. It was a Junior XL size (about a 14) and had to make it over to Woman's 22. The seam was not big enough. I had to get new fabric, a poly gabardine and cut a pattern from the original uniform. Then take all the school stuff of the original and put them on the new one. Got it done, and fit the girl great. Well three weeks into the season, she is loosing weight and the skirt is too big. At least we can take the waist in.

    Hoping I didn't set a precedent. She's the oldest of 5!

    Well it is a nice dress....I don't know how people sew lol, I can not understand the patterns and instructions, people laugh at me because I can quilt but not "sew", but you did a great job.

    Photo #1 says it all. She loves it and she looks awesome wearing it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
