Good Deeds Dress

I have wanted to try the Good Deeds Dress pattern since Becca and Carisa released it! I love it. Very simple, both to sew and to wear, and so customizable (is that a word?).  I made two while I was at it, one 12 mo and the other 3 yrs.  Here's my precious girlie wearing the smaller one:

I used one of the prints my friend Shannon gave me last summer, along with some contrasting bias binding, some faux piping, and a 1" finished strip border for near the hem.  BTW, Shan, what size is your little lady now? :)

I'm definitely going to be making more of these!  The pattern is super simple, only two pattern pieces plus one rectangle for the skirt.  The dress has no closures at all, as the cross-over bodice allows it to be pulled on.  The bias binding on the armholes and neck edge are probably the most complex part.
