Grown-up Inspired Outfit -- Girls Dress and Shrug

I'm a little too late for last week's theme at Project Run and Play, but I thought I would post it anyway.  The theme was grown-up inspired clothes.  I found a dress at Anthropologie I thought would translate well to children's clothing and wanted to pair it with a ruffled shrug, so I found one to mimic at Macy's.

I started out with some fabric, lace, a shirt (which I was planning on refashioning for myself, but decided against it), and an embroidered piece from a pair of Daisy's pants that were worn out.

It took a day and a half of neglected housework, but I'm really happy with the result. Plus Daisy loves her new dress and "weter" (sweater).

*Stay tuned* -- I'll be posting tutorials for the shrug and tips on making your own pattern for the dress.

I'm linking this project up to the all the wonderful parties listed on my blog link parties page,
as well as the 733 "Knock it Off" contest.
