My little Miss American Pie

Another project with out a pattern. I KNOW! I am getting good. Not really I still have a lot of work and practice to do on creating the patterns but I seem to be okay at making them work for my own projects.

Anyways, this project was inspired by this super cute GAP ruffle dress. I saw this dress and thought I CAN MAKE THAT! I just love all the little details. The ruffles around the neck, and the synched waist with ties. Plus it is perfect for the 4th of July. I found this adorable fabric from that matches my little Lizzy's eyes perfectly.

I think I will do a step-by-step instruction on my next no pattern project. It might not be very clear but it is a start.

I threw in a few of pictures of a photoshoot I did with my daughter at the end just for fun.

I have a bit of the "I can make that" syndrome as well! Usually it pays off though! This dress is great! And your little girl looks like a sweetie. I am new to your blog and would love for you to follow mine as well. Come see me at if you get a chance!
Have an awesome day!

This is adorable. I'm always jealous of someone who can see something and recreate it.

Adorable dress! It's so impressive that you can make something without a pattern! She looks adorable in the dress, too!
