Sweet Little Star Dresses

I bought my first online pattern the other day.  The Sweet Little Dress is all over the internet, and it's so incredibly cute.  I'm hoping the girls love it, and I can make it in a variety of styles.  They both love dresses!  I thought it would be fun to use this star fabric that my mom gave me awhile back.  I had multiple yards of the red, but only about a yard of the white, so I made the smaller one in that, with the coordinating sleeves in red.  This is a 2T size and a 7 size, for my 3 and 6 year olds.  The 2T is a titch short, but plenty wide (she's crazy petite) and the 7 fits my oldest perfectly.  The first one took me awhile, but the second one came together pretty rapidly.  I love how the elastic makes the sleeves and neck look so cute!  I'm excited to use some other fabrics to make more for summer, and to experiment with some alterations.
