Thank you so much for this wonderful review. You inspired me to use this pattern to make my own Belle dress.

wow, that looks so difficult. Great job. And, you hit the nail on the head--it's the perfect yellow Belle gown.

Great job on the gown! It's beautiful and it looks like it fits perfectly! Belle is my fave of the Disney princesses.

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?

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.

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