I’ve put together a tutorial for you and I’ll give you the measurements that I used. The pictures and instructions correspond to a second dress that I made, hence the red skirt; this one is about a size 5. (I actually didn’t like how the second dress turned out – the prints on the fabric were too similar in size – I separated them and ended up with the cutest shirt for Olivia, and I’ll sew the red dot into a skirt.) This is going to be an “adjust for your child” sort of sizing, okay? I’m estimating that the circus dress turned out to be about a size 12-18 months and I’ll give you the measurements that I used to help you guesstimate your own sizing.
Topstitch along the edge (not shown). DONE!!

Okay, I’ve been waiting for the dress info! I adore this! The blue and yellow just pops, and is fun and classic at the same time!
I’m really enjoying these posts…I’m curious about your cupcake wrapper location?
Thank you for taking the time to pull this all together for us!

I love this dress! Thanks for the tutorial – I’ve never done shirring before, but this makes me eager to try it.
LOVE. I still haven’t figured out how to get my Brother to shirr properly! So annoying. 🙂
This is awesome, Thank you for sucha great tute too so whoever doesn’t win can make their own. I love it.
At first I thought this was a shirt and skirt combo…I like it even more now that I know it’s a dress! Okay, seriously, how do your cakes come out so even? Mine are always lopsided 🙂
Cute party idea. The circus dress is my favorite and I like the little Pom poma on a stick. I’m new to your blog but I love all your sweet ideas.
