I'm hoping to do this dress for the summer. I think I may make my own rings, possibly covering a plain metal ring with polymer clay to match the fabric. I see lots of great possibilities...IF I can get the muslin to fit first!

Very pretty! Thanks for the tip to look in the craft store for the rings. Your daughter looks very sweet.

Lovely outfit! The white pique is a perfect match for this darling dress.

GREAT dress, fantastic fit, LOVE the fabric! I've found that it helps to have my subjects lean back a tad when I photograph them- gives a better representation of the true fit of the garment. You did an awesome job!

DD looks so smart in her new dress. This would also make a great holiday party dress in some glitzy fabric.

I love it! I love the rings! What is the pattern number for the jacket? I think I need that one!

Nice dress, I'm not surprised your daughter is happy with it, the rings at the back are a really nice detail.

Darling dress. And the white pique jacket makes it possible to wear to work and then to dinner. Very versatile and chic.

I've been working on this pattern for a few months. I got stuck on the rings- good idea. It looks very cute.
