I am not kidding. This dress took 15 minutes to make. I learned a lesson or two along the way but it was a quickie to make. You basically sew the top portion (you buy it already puckered at Jo-Ann's) into a tube, add some straps (I used binding), sew a bottom portion on and hem. Too easy! And she loves it, which is even better. She has worn it two days in a row. I need to make her another one. Forgive the poor quality of the pictures--it's hard to get an excited girl to stay still!
