I made this dress for my granddaughter for Christmas. I bought her lacy socks and sparkly red shoes to match. She loved it - "mine dress?" she asked. She immediately wanted to put on the whole outfit (new cami and undies too), toddled upstairs to the big mirror,
and did the twirl test.
Then came the jumping on the bed in sheer joy,
followed by a pensive pose by the window.
This is probably THE most gratifying project I have ever made.
