This is my first attempt at taking pictures with a tripod and the help of my little kids, which is why they are all crooked. Working on that....
For my first Sylvie here, I chose a size 8 based on my measurements. It was very big and I had to shave a lot off the back, so for this version I went with a straight 4 and it fits perfectly.
I'm in love with this fabric that I purchased on Amazon. It never occurred to me to look there for fabric until Oonaballoona posted about it. It's very floaty, so I underlined it in a lightweight muslin.
You'll have to turn your head to the side for this one because things aren't cooperating today, but that's a close up of the pockets and gathered skirt...
...and another sideways close-up of the three darts at the bust to provide shape.
I wore this at the park and a 6 year old girl told me my dress was pretty. You know 6 year old girls don't lie!
