The one suggestion I have is maybe to have the waist of the dress start a little higher in the front?  Like, start the flare right where the pintucks end, instead of down at her waist, to give it a slightly more empire waist effect. Does that make sense?  I think that might balance out the shirred back more, and give you more emphasis on the pintucking.

Anyway, great job, and good luck in your design!

I agree with you on the waistline. Once I finished it and put it on her it looked a little too long waisted. I guess that's what happens when I design on the fly! LOL! This was my first time doing an a-line skirt.

In spite of the fabric this is still really cute!  I like the back too, actually (could maybe use a little modification, sure, but the basic idea, definitely), and I think it's probably nice for kidwear to have the extra room there.  It's no fun to have a dress you can't move around in!
Great job!!! Smiley

I love the idea you have, but I'm with everyone else, the back just doesn't seem to go.  I think you have awesome sewing and drafting skills; you should think about selling your patterns as well.  Keep up the good work! Grin

LOL! This is a really old post! It was a dress I was making back when I first started sewing.  Cheesy I have since learned to make proper sleeves, among other things.  Wink
