Simplicity 4147 in black cotton with white dots, edged in hot pink satin ribbon.
McCalls 5306 in white pique trimmed with hot pink rick rack. Both pieces turned out okay. These are the "easy" pieces, though. There is a lot of work left to be done.
I'm also still working on the poodle bishop.
I've added the bottom border- a simple repeat of the lower white row of the top border, and it seems to work just fine. Back-smocking has begun and I think it will go pretty fast. It's mindless work that can be done while I watch TV. This dress is a gift for a family friend and it needs to be finished before the child outgrows it! So with that, I'm off to back-smock some more!
