    UFO Dress

    My sisters and I found this fabric and pattern tied up together while going through some more of my late mom's things. I brought it home just out of curiosity and because the pattern is cute. This afternoon I decided I'd either do something with it or toss it. Turns out part of the pattern had been cut out but there wasn't enough fabric for the front of the dress. I took the challenge and this is what came of it. Now to determine which of the tykes will get it. We have three granddaughters under the age of two, surely it will fit one of them. What do you think? Did I manage a decent finish for one of mom's UFO's?

    Darling! now may suggest you go to Joann's and get maybe 3 whimsical buttons to down the yoke or sew a pretty red bow at the neck. And you know you'll have to make more with 2 gds.
    So cute!

    You did great. Is there enough fabric left to put pockets or an applique on? Checks on the white and white on the checks.

    If you decide to go to Joann's and get buttons you may want to pick up some more fabric for the other two gds! I am sure they will be begging for the cute little dress!

    That is a good save. Reminds me of an outfit I made for 4-H. I used black and white and made the top for a white pair of shorts. Think I placed on it and went to the state contest. Back in the early 60's. Fashion does have it's cycles.

    Certainly did. Great finish.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Yes I love this idea put some fun buttons down the front or a cute pocket with trim... love the fact that you finished up one of your Mom's UFOs.. She is smiling on you and yes you know you will have to make more so all GD will have one and then take a pic ...
