The little Dress for Christmas

So, I can now post this, it's done. Pattern used was Simplicity 4511. I made a few changes. I didn't add the contrast band on the bottom of the skirt, (didn't have enough fabric, and it would of been too long). Didn't add the bow and tie to the waist.
It took awhile, but it wasn't too bad of a project. Above is a close-up of the trim around the waist.

Above is the dress, with the petticoat underneath, looks a little lopsided. The skirt is a full circle, made from a silver/blue crepe back satin, the bodice is a piece of blue velvet. It also has a white & blue ribbon trim around the neck.

Below is a pic of the dress, without the petticoat underneath. It has a zipper in the back.
I did like making this, and will probably make it again, perhaps in something like cotton, for the summer.

And now, finishing some other projects.
