The dresses. You can see the damage letting your daughters play with permanent markers does.
And the final shorts. I just cut the neckline from the dress front and back and just used that for the shorts band. I wanted to use the flower, but it was too big to fit anywhere. For the striped dress, I placed the bottom of the shorts just above the ruffle. I know the nerdlet will like the purple version. I'm not sure about the bottom version, but I figure no one will see them under dresses and they are sort of cute in a bizarre kind of way so one of the girls might take to them.
And just because I think it's interesting, the size 2 pattern piece on top of the size 14 (before alteration).
