Wow! What a gorgeous dress. I love your pleated ruffle and the pleated waistline does look so much slimmer. Fabulous!

I love all the changes you made to the pattren. I agree with the gathered skirt part, it will make the tummy look bigger and I love the pleats! It is just beautiful on you and a lovely daughter too! Very pretty.
