    Robin,

    If you find a fabric, share the link. 🙂

    No, it will be awesome! I want to make the full on version too. So very very wonderful!

    I read through the directions last night. As usual, they are well put together. I don’t think there’s anything especially difficult at all. For an experienced sewer, it’s not a difficult dress and for someone less experienced, I think if you just take your time, it will work out well.

    I do wonder, actually, how people prefer to finish the armsyce seams. The rest of the dress is lined, so no raw edges showing, but what about sleeves? I like to bind them, especially for a fraying fabric or a really special dress, but that is definitely time consuming. I suppose you could turn the seams inward and stitch the lining to the seam allowance, but wouldn’t that make a little bulk in the shoulders?

    I was wondering why the sleeves or the armhole edges aren’t caught in the bodice layers? I’m having a hard time visualizing the lining steps in the directions. I might assemble things differently next time just so I can avoid the bias facing – which I tried last night and totally botched 🙂

    Jenny, what about Anna Maria Horner’s new Field Study fabric? She’s got some animal prints that might work.

    Spotted in the corner might work well. The scale is small, which when using animal on a little girl, I think is KEY.

    Fine feather is really nice too. I am seriously having problems deciding b/c there are so many awesome fabrics out there and this dress can go fancy pants or total casual or anything in between! 😀
