Dress for a Toddler

I made this little number for the daughter of one of my friends in Houston. I wanted to get her a birthday gift, but didn't have the car that day. So I improvised.
I gathered up enough scraps and followed this tutorial (they also have one for infants) with a few alterations. I sewed the straps at the top instead of doing ties. I also added the little waistband by adding two strips of fabric between the bodice and skirt. The flower is just a strip of fabric (narrower at one end) that I gathered, wrapped, then scalloped the edges.
Tada! Piece of cake.
