In case no one here has made this dress, this site here:
apparantly has a search feature that allows you to look up a pattern and read a review.

When you're done, you could post a picture here!  Grin

I saw that pattern and absolutely loved it.  Too bad most of the kids in my family are boys.  I think you should definitely try it...even if it's hard, it will still be motivating to work on it since it looks so cool! :^)

At least, that's what I would figure....

I am using this one right now.  I am doing the option with the overskirt peices and the gauntlets.  It seems very straight forward and easy an dI have only sewed easy patterns before.  I am making mine with a shiny pink bodice and overskirt with an all white floral print for the underskirt, gauntlts and sash.  I have to have myine done by the end of the week which seems feasible with this pattern.  I will let you know how it turns out and try to get a pic of it although I don't have a digi cam.
