Houndstooth Dress

I found some houndstooth fabric and grabbed it.  Here's what it turned into:

It's just a basic peasant-style dress made using Simplicity Pattern 5695.  I lengthened the sleeves and added a tie with coordinating fabric. 

I had the hardest time getting her to model this one for me.  Every time I'd set her down and run to get in position to take a picture.  She'd be running behind me {sort of-it was one of the first times I put her in shoes} and I could only get one picture at a time.

That is, until I let her take her shoes off and carry them around.  Then we got lots of pictures.  We also got lots of wood chips stuck to her tights.
