This dress would have been super easy if I hadn't picked such tricky fabric!  The black is a velour, and was so slippy!  Even with pins it would not stay aligned.  The red fabric likes to split and pucker.  However, I totally got to witness my daughter's first ever "look, it's so pretty!" twirl, so all that frustration is forgotten!  Also, I sewed down the zipper without bunching the fabric, which is a first!  I would go look at the pattern I used (and altered slightly) but my lovely model is asleep on my lap at the moment.  My only changes were skipping the sleeve elastic and not making the ruffled underskirt.  It was a two hour project (spread over several days) only because of my fabric choices.

Oh, and pardon the model's comatose older brother (and the horrible mess!), even with the ac on, an afternoon siesta to beat the heat was required.

Wait, where did those come from?  I swear I didn't go to the craft store, honest!

Gorgeous!!
Just don't do what I always do and keep it 'for good' only to have her grow out of it before she wore it more than a few times. Cry

I love it when they twirl, too. Smiley

oh, it is fancy!  Very nice!  I have some of those slippery fabrics I've been saving for a holiday dress, but I'm a little scared now... shall make sure I'm in a calm frame of mind before I begin, otherwise it'll be out the window after the first few slips  Cheesy

Wow! It looks great! I hear you about slippery fabrics. I just recently tried to sew velvet after pinning like a madwoman and I was over an inch off. I just ripped it to shreds and gave all the velvet I had to goodwill. If I ever see it again it will be too soon for me!

Thank you everyone!  I wish I could remember what my mother did to keep slippery fabrics from getting all out of place.  She could sew anything, it seemed like.  I should ask her!

Great job.
