I found a great tutorial for my daughter's Easter dress on Ucreate.
This was my first complicated piece of clothing, and this tutorial was a good one to start on. It's fairly simple, no buttonholes, no fancy stuff, just a straight-forward dress. I made the 5T size for my average sized almost 4-year-old daughter because I'd rather have it too big than too small. It fits her just right and there's quite a bit of adjusting you can do with the button placement.
I changed just a few things-
- The skirt hem is shorter (about 1 1/2 inches instead of 4-5) because I didn't have quite enough of the yellow accent fabric
- I used 3/4 inch buttons instead of larger fabric covered ones
- I did flat-felled seams instead of serged or zigzag seams inside the skirt. It should make the skirt more durable and there won't be any fraying.
- I tacked the front of the sash to the dress just to keep it in place.
