It's really cute. I like the way it flares. My kids grew in width first and then in length a few months later. It would look cute with coordinating shorts.

Cute! Hope she gets to wear it, if only as a tunic, maybe?

The fabric is very cute, but I agree, the proportions are way off! I thought it was a bathingsuit for a grown-up untill I read the review. I hope she gets to wear it because it is very cute :)

Cute dress ~ and model, too ! My granddaughter is very slim and tall. I always measure and add up all the width of the pattern pieces (minus seam allowances) to see just how wide it will be before i cut the dress out. Usually, I will go one size smaller and then add about 1" to the length of the waist and 2" to the length. When sewing for children, measuring is the key.
