What are you most proud of? I work on 4 or 5 dresses at a time, so finishing all of them is always satisfying. I like this pattern so much, I plan to make more in various sizes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There's a lot of gathering involved, so decide on the best method. Reduce the bulk in the slip before attaching to the skirt to gather. I also found that the pattern for the slip ruffle makes a lot of ruffle ! You could cut this by 1/3 and still have a full ruffle. I hand stitched the bands to the bodice, so the stitches would be invisible. Have fun !

They're available for sale at www:mycountrycloset.etsy.com. My granddaughters have outgrown this size but I loved the pattern ~
