Pretty dress! It would be lovely to see it worn, so that we could appreciate the way it fits and falls. What a beautiful gift for your daughter.

Isabelle, I agree! My daughter doesn't like having her picture taken (at least not by me!), so I won't force her. Also, she was out when I finished it. Thanks for your nice compliments! :)

SO pretty! I have to say my favorite part is those sleeves, too, with the little binding on there. And your FABRIC is so unique, I love it. Maybe I'm related to your daughter is some other life, because I hate having my picture taken too. :o) I know she looks beautiful in it though.

Very nice. I expect she feels like a million bucks in it.

I agree w/JoanN58. This dress was very easy to make. I hadn't sewed in 20 years..about 2 months ago made two regency period (supposedly simple lol) dresses, and they were a bit difficult. They didn't fit quite right. I attempted this McCalls dress for a nice addition to my daughters' "Pride and Prejiduce" era dresses and I was Pleasantly suprised how easy it was. I actually made it, including cutting fabric, in 1 day. Wow! I won't hesitate to make a few more.
