My daughter is in pretty desperate need of summer dresses right now I decided to make her one out of some leftover challis from my polka dot scout tee.  I started with my free 2T Toddler swing tank pattern.  The top is exactly the same as the original pattern except that I added about 3 inches to it.  Then I added a 4 inch ruffle across the entire bottom.  Pretty much, if you can make the tank then you can easily make the dress too.

I am pretty excited about how it turned out.  I think she is going to wear it to my husband’s graduation this Friday.  I still need to decide what I am going to be wearing though.

    Really cute! I think I am gonna do one for my sweet daughter too. She loves the toddler swing tank I make for her.
    Thanks for the idea.
