Awesome! Too bad you live so far away because my granddaughter would love to play dress up with your daughter! They are the same size and appear to be fahionistas at a young age! Absolutely gorgeous dress and the "modeling" is super. I give it a 10!

Outstanding! Beautifully made and a great review. Love the Christmas photo. Your DD is quite the model.

So boho-chic in her silk and lace and boots and tights (not to mention her blue nail polish...)! I love seeing this on her -- it fits her beautifully and she looks amazing in it. A true style-child!

I can see this in the window of the exclusive children's shops on the Upper East Side. Well done!

Your daughter is going to feel like a princess in this gorgeous dress! I hope to see pictures from the 14th. I love the bow at the neck. Thank you as always for the wealth of luscious detail and helpful links!

Much nicer than Miss Johnson's designs, especially her recent sketch for Mrs. Obama! Much closer to one of Herr Lagerfeld's exquisite creations. A very beautiful dress, thank you for sharing the wonderful details. Your daughter must be ecstatic. I see why you were inspired by the shoes; they're fabulous.
