I made the dresses for the girls (kind of like bridesmaids) from a lovely yellow and white striped shirting. The birthday girl's mom did a great job picking the pattern which was flattering for lots of different shapes and sizes, it was New Look 6223.
We chose the gathered bodice with cap sleeves. I also added some small white buttons along the pleats on the sides.
The dresses went together really easily, I'd definitely recommend the pattern!
I was pretty busy making sure the dresses got done on time, so I didn't get a chance to take any really nice close-up pics of the dresses, just snapped some with my phone!
Fortunately, the talented Arlen Nydam was there and able to get some great pics!
I had mentioned possibly getting a pic with the girls' hands in their pockets, as they were all pretty excited to have pockets in a dress (girls after my own heart!) Love these!
It was a fun project and all the girls looked great, especially next to the stunning birthday girl!
