Another really cute easy dress!
There's one hem, and one simple measurements to take. Just 2 bandana sewn together and shirred at the top. This is more like a quick how to, than a tutorial. Working with bandanas takes a lot of "eyeballing it".

Measure your subject around the chest. Divide in half. Add 7 inches.
My little girls measurements were 22 inches. (she's about a 3T) So I need each piece to be 18 inches wide.
Turn your bandannas so that right sides are touching. Most bandannas have a "made in china" stamp. Make sure that this writing is at the top of your dress. Sew up the seams. Then I cut the excess of with pinking shears and pressed out the seam.
There's no need to hem the dress at the bottom, unless you want it shorter. It's all about personal preference.
I love halters because they are so easy and they look good too. I sewed on double sided satin ribbons to the front.
FYI: Wal Mart has the best bandanas EVER. They are made of a SOFT cotton that seems to have a pretty decent thread count. They also have a huge selection of different colors and patterns. Oh, and they are $1.
