Easter dress

Here's my daughter's Easter dress. The true miracle here is that Easter is 3 days away and here dress is done. I think this is the first holiday dress I have completed preholiday. I'm usually late to the days events because I'm putting in a zipper, sewing on buttons, or have been up since the crack of done sewing the whole thing! So this is a big deal for me. I hope I can continue getting things done ahead of time. It makes for a lot less stress.
This is the pattern I used. I love these patterns. They are so simple. I made this dress from start to finish in one afternoon. I had it done and diner on the table at 5:30pm. You can't beat that. I did make some modifications. Well one was a mistake but it turned out fine. The pattern tells you to measure down 18" and over 3" to make the bottom of the dress but I only measured over 2". It looks fine to me though. I also decided the waist was a little to high for the look I was going for. I placed the waist 2.5" from the armpit. Still thinking about making a fabric flower to go at the waist hmm or the neck line. I haven't decided yet.
