Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

 I came across these recently: Poppy Field dress by Groovybabyandmama during Kid's Clothes Belgian Style series hosted by Straightgrain.  It was so inspiring, it was contagious ~ I just had to make one, too :)

The pattern: Oliver+S Fairy Tale Dress, size 5, no sleeves, no collar, no bow

The fabrics: Poppy Field by Michael Miller and the lining is 100% cotton voile in white

The mods: I raised the waistline up 3 inches and widened the neckline. Also the width of the skirt is 44 inches (which is the entire width of the fabric) and not the 52.5 inches that is needed in the pattern (so the skirt is not as full)
PS I'm really getting my money's worth out of this pattern ~ this is the 6th time I've used it!
