BEAUTIFUL dress! I can't even imagine how much fabric you had to use, if you doubled the length of the skirt. :o)

That looks exactly like Belle! Oooh. The skirt looks gorgeous, that must have taken tons of work to get all the shirring in and have it look so professional.

Stunning and very well-done dress (you got the "Belle" look spot-on), but did you know that the pattern link shows pattern #4279. instead of 4269?
