Here is a blog post about the 2 dresses I made from this pattern.
http://perrymoffitt.com/2013/01/23/simplicity-2460-springtime-dreaming/


I made the size 3t, it seems right on the mark, my girl is tall and skinny and it works great. I was able to use 2 half yards of complementary fabrics, not including the sash, for the red dress. Huge win, I have lots of half yards in my stash!
The pattern is pretty good, I might make a fully lined bodice next time, but otherwise, pretty darn good.
And now that I see the picture, maybe a shorter ruffle sleeveā€¦
I did a button and ribbon loop instead of the hook and eye. I like it better.
I think it would be a great pattern for velvet or taffeta, really nice shape.
