I just finished ( with the help from my aunt on the hem) a simple girl's dress for my daughter. I purchased the fabric from Joanne's this spring. The fabric had the top part all finished so all you had to do is tear it so it would hang right, make a seam, hem it, and I made straps out of bias tape. Walla a dress. Very Cute if I don't say so mysef. I have some left over fabric I am hoping to make myself a skirt and her American girl doll one too.
