I finally finished the princess dress for my 2-year-old niece. Here it is!!



I used McCalls 4622, which turned out to be a great pattern. I liked it so much that I went today and bought another one in the larger size to maybe someday use for my own daughters. I made one adjustment to the sleeves and did a ribbon casing for the elastic rather than the self-casing suggested by the pattern. It was easier. I also did a petticoat to help the skirt stand out.

This is only my second time inserting a lapped zipper and it went in without a hitch - yay! Here's a pic of the back, which looks pretty much like the front, I'm just adding it to be braggy.



More pics and info on my blog.
