Well, this has been my most successful dress so far. Sophia wore it from the time that I finished to bedtime.
Confused by the material? The first dress was made as a size 3, but swallowed Sophia. The next day I made a second one, size 2. This one turned out okay, but I had the same problems with the ruffle, arrrrggghhh. It also showed the problem that I expected which was that it was somewhat hard to put on since there are no buttons or a zipper.
