Baby blue....shirt!

I am having so much fun sewing for my daughter. I used a basic dress pattern for this shirt. (I used less than a yard of fabric. Here's a few things I altered from the dress pattern:
  • Instead if doing the length of the dress, I just shortened it to the length of a long shirt.
  • Instead of gathering at the waist line, I did a few pleats.
  • Instead of using a zipper for the back, I used buttons with ribbon loops.
  • I added a collar, just a strip of fabric that I gathered.
  • I added the ribbon across the waist line and a bow with some buttons.
