I wish everything I made was received with a smile like that!  She looks gorgeous, and I love the way the fabrics complement the style.

goregous dress!! I wish my mom could sew for me!
I have a question about the skirt part of the dress: How are the layers constructed?  Do they all connect to the waist?  And what shape would each layer be?  I tried and failed miserably to make a skirt like that.

Thanks!  I used simplicity 2693 for the pattern parts.  I didn't follow it to a T bc I can't figure out pattern instructions for nothin'.  I fitted the cumberbund tightly to her waist and attached it only to the back waist where the zipper is.  There is a basic skirt with a lower ruffle attached.  Then there is a middle and upper ruffle that have the edges matched and sewn to the main skirt part and the bodice attached.  I hope that helps.

Hi, you did a really good job with this pattern. I'm in the process of making the same one and I was wondering if you had to make any adjustments for the bust area? I hope I'm not too late with this question. Also, I was wondering what kind of material you used.

Thanks.

Thanks, yes, i did have to make adjustments, my daughter is a lot bigger on the bottom than the top so we went by the measurements on the envelope and it ended up being waaaay to big.   I had to take in some of the seams on the bodice and lining.  i also found the cumberbund was a total pain in the butt to make the way they suggested.  I actually thought it looked better without the gathering stiches anyway.  I'm not sure what the fabric was, it was from Joann's Riviera collection.  It was similiar to cotton but with more of a sheen to it if that makes sense...sorry, I am not so great wit identifying material.  Good Luck!
