This was one of the projects that actually made it off my to do list in time for the party. I used the great tutorial that Jess at Craftiness is not Optional contributed to See Kate Sew's Pleat Weeks.
The tutorial was for this adorable top, but I really wanted to make a dress. I followed the tutorial to make the top, and then added two little cap sleeves and an easy, slightly-gathered tiered skirt.

I don't sew clothes very often, but this made me think I should do it more often! I really like the way the dress turned out, and I thought it was special that her dress matched the party theme and decor. (See the party here).
