The dress is cute and your monkey is as adorable as ever!

...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

More pink, shirring and bell sleeves with more 'ding dong' would be fantastic!  Grin How about making the neckline just a tad rounder?

QB, its a peasant top style neck - gathered with elastic in a casing, so it is as it is.  However, next one (oooh, I have plans!) I'm going to use a regular dress top, and put a zipper on it.  Which means that the kid will need help to put it on (which she hates) but will definitely give it more shape.

I love it!  I totally get what you mean about the shape... have you considered putting some elastic on the side of the waist?  Kinda of like on some peasant tops?  I think that may help out a little bit.

I love it and think the flouncy pants would be adorable with it.  So I'm guessing you came up with this pattern yourself right?

Thanks Kymy and funda62!  Funda, it is not so much a pattern as a few different techniques, but yes  Smiley
