partial sundress refashion

As I mentioned, I am working on building my daughter's summer wardrobe. I made this sundress last week. While I was sewing it, I was so excited because I loved how it was looking. THEN, I added the sleeves and I wasn't sure how I felt about it anymore. I decided to put it away for a week. 

When I pulled it out today, I fell in love again. Funny how sometimes you need to not look at something for a while.  

Seeing it on this cute thing helped a little. I truly feel she could make a potato-sack look good. I know I might be a little biased though. 
I love the crocheted ribbon detail around the bodice. 

I had just enough to add it to the bottom too. I bought a spool of it at Walmart for $2.97. I used a similar cream spool on this dress. I bought the main fabric on sale at Joann's. 

Are you wondering what part was the refashion? All the white fabric came from a white shirt my husband never wore. I think he got it from my brother. 

Although it's not raining today, we are still waiting for summer to arrive. 
I used this pattern from Simplicity. I followed a link to the pattern after seeing this dress. I used the size 4 pattern and my daughter usually wears a size 5 or 6.

So has she been named BEST DESSED yet???? Each one is better than the next. I love the whole dress and the fabric is too die for, my Joanns does not have that.

Can't wait to see what is next.
