The dress and apron are all done!

Hi everyone,

I had to make a costume for my daughter's play.
She needed a dress and apron for the play "Alice in Wonderland".
So, I took the challenge and made her a dress.

This is probably the most complicated piece of clothing I have ever made.
But, I'm happy with the way it turned out.
It fits her comfortably, and is decent.
The original pattern has a really low neck line.
So, I had to make that adjustment.
I used the Burda pattern 7556.
I used a polyester to make this dress.
It did have a bit of stretch, but it worked out.
I hope she likes it.
I put a lot of hours into it.
