Patriotic Ruffle Dress

Before the Fourth of July (obviously), I made this dress for my 8 month old:

I used the tutorial from Sumo's Sweet Stuff {HERE}. As long as you have a basic knowledge of a sewing machine, this dress is really fun to make. I had never done ruffles or a gathering stitch before (I know, shocker) and now I wonder why I was so afraid to try. It took me a couple hours total.

My sister also taught me how to do a {Kanzashi flower} to match. I L-O-V-E how the whole thing turned out on her (she's with the one and only Mule of this blog).
But, I think anyone would with a model this cute.
