my first go with this style. 

I was going to make some boutique capris to go with, but I'm not as in love with it as I want to be. 

Next time I'm going to add another twirly layer, make the layers longer, give more dingdong to the bell sleeves, and do some shirring.

Anyway, you can let me know what you think  Smiley


finally got around to reconning this into a skirt:

waaaay better as a skirt, very twirly!

Matching pants would look really cute. As always, the model steals the show!

thanks all!

earthmonkey, I think it just needs more shape.  As far as a big baggy dress to twirl in, though, my kid's pretty happy.  She just wants more pink next time  Roll Eyes

Love the fabric!  And I love anything peasant-y.  Bell sleeves are cute, but I agree...a little more ding dong *smile* would be good.   In high school I wore this dress of my mom's from the sixties (for homecomeing week...like 60's day) that had the BEST bell sleeves.  They draped down and were so awesome.  Sigh.  Eventually I got taller and it would only work as a shirt. (my mom is a bit shorter than me)

It is so pretty and such the lovely as ever wever monkey! Is the fabric plain ole' cotton? Pretty thing!

Good ideas for changes too -- I like lots of flounce and shirring. Ding Dong the sleeves will be even sillier -- could put dolls in 'em.
