You made this dress SOOOOOOOOOOOO special, Christa, for such a SPECIAL girl. :o) I can see by Margaret Anne's beaming face how much she loves her dress! It could not be ANY prettier. The SASH and the TUCKS and the TRIM, that 240-foot RUFFLE -- BEAUTIFUL! If you don't already have carpal tunnel, you're going to -- ha! MASTER WORKMANSHIP! :O)

What a beautiful, beautiful dress on such a beautiful girl (she is Meggie LuLu redux, I believe!). Love it with the leggings and the sash. (Annette, you have exquisite taste in fabric--and you are a very generous soul, too!)

What a treat to look at the details of Margaret Anne's dress. First of all she looks so beautiful and happy wearing this special dress. All of the changes you made along with using her Grandmother's buttons make it a work of art. Really lovely sewing!

Gorgeous! You really outdid yourself on this dress. No wonder Margaret Anne is beaming. I love all the details and the use of the buttons.

What a beautiful dress and she is so happy -- perfect. Can I tell how nice it is to see a dress for a young girl that doesn't look like it should be in an MTV video?

Wow! The dress is completely gorgeous and I am way impressed at how quickly you whipped it out. So much stunning detail work, and you can't have had that issue of Otto long. Mine only came yesterday.

Margaret Ann is a lucky girl to have such a stunning, custom, lovingly made Easter dress! Wow, the very thought of gathering a 240 inch ruffle makes my fingers hurt.

Absolutely lovely! Your attention to detail certainly made the dress. As another member said, I can see this being an heirloom piece. I especially love the use of her great grandmother's button. What a special touch!

This is so adorable - your work in making this dress takes it to the heirloom class. I sure know why Margaret Anne was grinnning when she saw this - it's the stuff of any little girl's dream dress. And another beautiful daughter Christas!!

Margret Anne and her dress are PRECIOUS! The dress is definitely of EUROPEAN DESIGNER quality. PERFECTION at its best. Christas, what a BEAUTIFUL family you have.

Beautiful Easter dress. Margaret Anne looks very pleased with her dress as well she should because it looks wonderful on her. Great job on all of the embellishments. The leggings and silver sandals add a modern touch to a classic dress. Nicely done.

I can't believe I'm THIS late in commenting on this wonderful dress. I should be bopped over the head with a tailor's ham! Christa, this really is one of my all-time favorites of the things you've created. Margaret Anne looks like a beautiful princess! The fit is absolutely perfect and the details and workmanship are heirloom-quality. This is one for the ages. And kudos to the savvy stylist (Margaret Anne?)! I love it.
