What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to change a patter to suit you. I chopped 10 inches from the hem and added a "belt to break up the lines and emphasize my daughters waist.

Your daughter is so pretty in her dress. She's lucky to have a very creative mom like you!

Thank you, my daughter was so excited to wear it! She diva enough to want to make sure no one else is wearing the same outfit she is.

Thank you Creativewan. My insisted on having anti-gravity shoes. I thought she wanted moon boots, which I carefully explained would not match the dress or occasion. That's when she carefully explained that I was lame and old. Then I threatened to appliqu the Summerfest smiley face logo on her dress. She shut up fast!
