Here is the dress I made for my sweet niece, Aaliyah, which was actually a gift for my sister's b-day. I bought the fabric super cheap at Joannes, the lady said it was one of their most expensive fabrics that had been significantly marked down. I used the same dress pattern for the bodice that I've used previously. The skirt part of the dress I had fun creating. It's two-layered; the top layer is"gathered" with elastic so that a bit of the bottom layer shows through. I know, not a good explanation and the pictures don't show it that well, but I love the unique look it gives the dress. Personally, I love the pattern, but a few people think it looks African or Christmas-y. I think it looks very sophisticated and unique. And of course, it looks darling on the even-more-darling baby, Aaliyah:
$5-$7. Super cheap and super cute!
