You did a great job on her dress. I like the picture of her reading the book!

Adorable dress! I like the idea of two colors of tulle. Beautiful job of construction.

What a pretty dress and a pretty princess! ;-) you did an excellent job on this pattern. I agree with the method you chose for the boning. This method was proposed in a Vogue dress I made and it looked much better and much more professionnal than the method Simplicity (and here, Burda) proposed. Plus, the boning didn't have a tendency to twist around. Kudos to you!
