Look at the perfect pointy waist bit!!!
I put a big red ribbon bow in the back, because.... why not?
it's a little long, at her request.... I sorta want to get it above the knee, but she can have it long for a few days, and then I'll hem it for good... right now it will probably hit mid-calf.
It's all cotton knit. The bodice is navy interlock, the sleeves are blue t-shirt jersey and red tissue jersey, and the gold skirt is cotton/poly interlock from JoAnn.
I'm seriously SO proud of myself I could BURST. It came out so much better than I had hoped.
(Here's a work in progress shot, after I hand-stitched the tear-drops, as I started cutting away the blue to show the red...
I always get nervous when I start cutting, but SQUEE isn't it cute?!?!?!
