Just in time for school tomorrow!
I just love this little dress. It's very much a "little girl" dress, but not so much that it looks baby-ish. The neckline is lower and wider than a traditional square yoke dress. The sleeves, although slightly gathered, do not have a band or a cuff. And the skirt, while quite full and swingy, is not gathered to the bodice. It's a great look for a young lady.The dress buttons all the way down the back.
It's a great pattern to showcase smocking without looking too young. The Princess is pleased with it.I'm pretty pleased with it, too, and I'm pretty sure we'll be making it again!
