I adore this dress. It hangs beautifully on the lovely Jenna, and it's a perfect style for her age. Love the pleated details and the perfectly stitched pink bow. The dress is expertly made, which is evident even from the wrong side! Now that you've traced all of those fiddly pieces and are a pro at seaming it together, I certainly hope to see another version of this gorgeous dress!

I agree with Anne Marie, you MUST make another of these little jewels. After all, you've done ALL that tracing and marking, so it will go SOOOOOOOO much faster this time. (Okay, maybe not, but I'm still voting for another one.) THIS one is just BEAUTIFUL, as is Miss Jenna wearing it. PERFECT-ISIMO!

This is such a great dress on Jenna! The fabric is perfect even though it was fiddley (is that a word:) Even before I read the comments, I was going to say the same thing - you have spent so much time tracing you really should make a second one. Great job on this one!!!

You must work well under pressure...14 pattern pieces, Burda instructions, the night before pulled it off beautifully! I love Jenna's dress and how pretty she looks in it. The lovely fabric combined with your attention to detail make this an exquisite creation.

I can see why Jenna loves this dress -- it's absolutely beautiful and she looks as pretty as a flower in a garden. It's so interesting about the intricacy of the pattern pieces needed to create something that looks effortless and lighter than air! I love the design. This is a perfect Easter dress that she can wear all spring and summer. Your girls are so lucky.

Your daughter looks great in her new dress. Thanks for the hint on time-management.

This lovely linen dress is just perfect for Jenna's age and style. She looks beautiful in the cool looking spring frock and I can see why another dress has been requested. After seeing the close-up of the front detail, I see why it was more difficult to construct. Would it be necessary to line a more opaque fabric? Perhaps try that. Anyway, I'll await part 2; dress #1 turned out perfectly.

this is so pretty! i totally agree that it is a great "tweenish" dress. it does have an effortless look to it, which is tough when no lay person could tell how much work it was! but great job as always-

I agree that this style is perfect for a girl of Jenna's age. The dress is absolutely beautiful, and you did a great job sewing it.
