Hehehe, I know butterflies don't generally wear pink satin dresses but K. couldn't be more pleased with her ensemble. (Well, except that she's decided it may need a touch of purple. Maybe the bow that I haven't made yet can be purple or the antenna).
This dress came together fairly easily but it was a hefty a time commitment. I think it took me longer than it did to cut and sew 5 yards of harem cloth feathers! Must think of some other occasions that call for a full length pink satin dress :)
The only change I made (besides lengthening the skirt) was to lower the neckline by 1/2". I lined it but didn't include the tulle skirt, which I kind of regret. I did make a petticoat last year that she could wear if she wants more poof. I love the style and the fit and I adore the sleeves. I think this would be great in anything from cotton to silk. And my girl is happy, which is all that matters!
