Crazy Fun Flower Dress For Tweens & 18" Doll

I made these dresses with Springtime on my mind....I just ADORE how they turned out!!  The bright and happy print on the skirt is showcased by the cheerful colors on the bodice and sash.  I got inspired and added a faux-shirt front (aka "placket") that wasn't in the original FooFoo Threads pattern because I found some sweet little buttons at the store that perfectly matched the skirt fabric.

The girls dress has shirring on the back of the bodice, so it's easy to get on with no pesky buttons or zippers in the back, but the doll's version has Velcro all the way up the back which we have found to be the easiest for the younger girls to manage.

This dress is made to order in girls sizes 6-10 and 18" doll size.
