Crazy 8 knock off dress!

So I loved this knit dress from Crazy 8 but it was only on sale for 10.99 and I didn't want to pay that much for it so I didn't get it. Plus after looking at the dress in zoom mode on their website I felt like with my new bravery for making patterns that I could tackle it on my own! My knock off is below! I used some knit that I had on hand that I DON'T LOVE just incase it ended up badly!!! I love the way the dress fits and how much lissie loves wearing it!!! Now I need to find some lighter weight knit in a print that I LOVE and then I will be totally satisfied with my knock off!!!

I could cut the sleeves to make them not as long to look more like the orignal but Lissie is in Heaven with them the way they are so I will leave them!!!!

You can't tell by the picture but Lissie LOVES this dress!!! She said she feels like a butterfly!!! (Zander was playing PBS kids on the computer and she wanted to be watching him play not taking PICTURES!!!!!)

Also next time I will have enough fabric length so that I dont have to make the dress in two peices so that the print will match up all the way down the front of the dress!!! I am thinking about making a tutorial on how I did it so if someone wants to make one also they can!!!!
