Buttons & Birds Dress

Project Run and Play season 14 is here! Actually, it has "been here" for about a week, but I just finished my first outfit to enter into the sew-along today. 
The first week's challenge was to create an outfit using buttons to highlight the look.
To start my creative process, I started digging through my box of patterns. I found this McCalls M6982 pattern, never before cut to size. My daughter has recently grown taller, and several of her church dresses have become scandalously short, so I decided she needed a new dress.
I took stock of my fabric stash, and found a beautiful bird fabric that I bought from the remnants section a while ago (I don't remember how long ago or from what store), and the pink gingham that I used recently. I already had a bunch of buttons, trims, elastic, and zippers in my notions stash, so I did not need to go to the fabric store for any supplies for this outfit. Yay for staying out of the fabric store for another project!!!
