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.

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

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.
