Tana Tutu Dress - Big Girl Style

When my "adopted" granddaughter came over to sew, she decided she wanted a Tana Tutu Dress. Since she is 8 we decided we would make it a little more "grown up" looking. She's 8 but is very slim so I had to adjust the pattern to fit. I slimmed out the sides, added buttons at the top instead of the ribbon and a longer tulle ruffle. I used the 6" tulle in a roll and it worked very well. It's made to fit her short so she can wear black leggings underneath. She came by today for the final fit and I finished it after she left. I hope to get a picture of her in the outfit to post.

You amaze me. You're so creative. I'm trying to accomplish shrinking one of Aimee's patterns to fit Kaitlyn's doll. Only it's easier for me because I just pick a percentage and shrink it; you are really having to do the math. Have a great weekend.
