Quarantine Chic Toddler Summer Dress

It's a weird world when you think it's cute to make a matching mask for your little girl's summer dress...but it is cute! I drafted this pattern based on one of her 2T dresses...though drafting is honestly a strong word. It was more like improvising...I think changed the length of those ruffles four times before I finally sewed them down! But it turned out cute, and I indeed had enough fabric leftover to make a cute lil matching mask for her, which she loves even though she doesn't really go anywhere. 

The fabric is by Dear Stella designs and I bought it on Etsy. (I am obsessed with Dear Stella Designs right now!) Honestly, I've been buying most of my fabric on Etsy lately because the shipping delays at places like Fat Quarter Shop are just insane. They just now shipped an order that I placed in early June. I get why and I'm not mad, but it is making me like Etsy more right now. Also, another strange side effect of this quarantine thing...I didn't have enough buttons that matched to put buttons on the back of the dress for the closure, so I used velcro. Yep, like a doll dress! I figure I can easily change it out for some cute coral colored buttons when I get some.
