Easter Dress

BookGirl's Recital Book
Size: 130
Fabric: Wal-Mart mystery (content unknown) fabric.  Poly/cotton? The right side had a shiny sheen to it, so 
i used the wrong side.

This book is a little tricky, but the result compares to a boutique made, custom fit dress. The book gives you 
the basic bodice and sleeve pattern you can trace off of the back side of the dust jacket. Then you make 
adjustments using your child's measurements with the help of their diagrams for each dress. You also 
have to draft the skirt parts. It took me one evening (about two hours) just to draft the patterns, but again, 
my patience was well rewarded.
