Your daughter is lovely and the dress is well done and thankyou for the idea of making a blouse to go underneath. I made this dress--sleeveless with no apron--for my granddaughter this summer. I meant to do a review, but time slipped away. I agree with you about the lack of instruction for beginners, but good for you about perservering! My beef about the instructions was the lack of direction regarding how to attach the sash for the dress. An unattached sash is just going to slip down on a little girl who has no hips to hold it up. What I did was to sew the front piece into the seam attaching the bodice to the skirt and stiched in the ditch at the sides. Next time I will sew the front piece the same way and then sew the back sash pieces separately in the back side seam allowances. I find that Burda children's patterns offer very nice styles, even though --in my opinion--some of their construction techniques are more difficult than they need to be. The next time I make this pattern I will also cut another set of bodice pieces to avoid the sleeve and neck facing pieces. You did a great job of your daughter's dress! :)
