And here is the latest version of the dress!
The earlier versions of the dress (here and here) had a band at the bottom that could be used for color blocking. The bottom band is still included in the pattern, but an option has also been added for a solid skirt piece, like the one shown above.
My daughter has grown since the floral version I made her earlier this summer, so this dress was a size up, and it seems to fit her really well. Honestly, I don't think it's quite frilly enough for her taste (she's into "princess" dresses these days), but I really love the shape and design.
As I mentioned earlier, there are still some things that need to be done before the pattern is ready for sale, but it's getting much closer! It's been so much fun (at at times, so frustrating!) to work on, but very satisfying as well.
