I have to admit that the dress turned out way better than I expected. I also made my daughter get up early on a Saturday to go take photos. I'm entering it into the BurdaStyle contest, though I don't know how well it will do. I must say I"m particularly happy with how the back came out. The apron is vintage and the coat was a gift last year from friends. The dress though, it was all me. I also made a peter pan style collar out of rabbit fur that just happened to be laying around the house. I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking.
