This is just as cute as it can be. Love the "model's" picture, too. :o)

That is ADORABLE!!!! I love your fabric choice!!!! This pattern was what my mom sewed for the flower girl outfits at my older sister's wedding (yours is so much more colorful).

This is just beautiful Paula! The seam finishing is outstanding work! I love the pretty fabric and colors and I would have been surprised also by the contrast being appliqued. You did a great job on it! Just gorgeous!

Paula, you know I just think your dress is wonderful and that you have done a fabulous job with the hemstitching. Glad I was able to "egg you on" a bit. I love the sparkle of the fabric and missed that detail earlier. Great review too! Bunny

Thanks for this review. I have some spring green eyelet sitting out and was looking at the pattern last night. Now I may reconsider the one using the contrast band. I was thinking of using white eyelet as a contrast band and white on the straps and I don't know. thanks again for the heads up.

This looks great! It does look like an expensive boutique dress. I'm going to have to go dig this pattern out!

Loved reading your blog and details about the hemstitching....I agree there's lots of pretty possibilities for it on summer blouses! Now I must order a wing needle, thanks for enabling. :)

This dress is sooo pretty, I love the hem detail and will certainly remember that for future use. You have made a beautiful job of it. I have made this pattern. I made the variation with the godets. I made the main dress in pale purple with little white spots and the godets where in matching pale purple with white stripes. It looked really nice and I recommend it too.

Very captivating dress and so nicely constructed! Super review! I have this pattern and made one of the other views. You inspired me to try this version with confidence! Thanks Paula!

Lovely dress, great work on the hemstitching; I've got to try that sometime. Thanks for the very informative review. ~Connie

This is an EXCELLENT review. The hemstitching is soooo beautiful and makes it look like a 300 dollar children's dress from a fancy boutique childrens store! I will definitely be adding this technique into my repoitoir(sp?) of sewing skills. And the people who skipped over this review because it is childrens' wear ( I know these don't get as many hits) seriously missed out!! Just think what hemstitching could do to a beautiful white stylish blouse! Thanks again!

You've done a great job I bet your granddaughter feels like a million dollars. I still remember the dresses my nana made me were the best ever.
