a bow in the back?  like....  a white ribbon around the front, tied in the back?  would that be cool?

Hey there.

You did a great job even if it didn't turn out how you wanted it too so well done - and it looks better once you put your socks and shoes on - it gave it a different look to when you were barefoot.

I agree about putting something down the front of the ruffles - say some big(gish) black buttons that are spaced quite a distance apart - a different colour to break up the grey and white.

All in all a grand job so again well done you!!!!!   Grin

With blessings.

Thank you everyone again for all your kind comments! I have taken on some of your suggestions and updated the dress a little.

I added some pink buttons to the front panel...


...and put on a detachable sash which ties into a small bow at the back. i probably would want a thicker sash though but this will do for now.


I like it a bit better now and the good thing is everything I've added is removable so if I ever got bored I could change it again!

Thanks again everyone!
