|We made a braided flower through a tutorial found on Pinterest.|
We used Simplicity 3426 because it had the required poofy skirt and a simple bodice top. The v neck in the back does not come down as low as the pattern artwork makes it seem. Instead of facings we lined the bodice so she wouldn't need to worry about the top being see through. It also gave her good practice on sewing darts since we had to make 12 of them. I must say she did a very good job!
One reason I love vintage patterns is their size ranges. She is tall for her age and these "Teen" patterns give the height and width needed without adding the bust room built into women's patterns.

|If the twirling is any indication, I think she likes the dress.|
|Even the kitty thought she looked lovely.|
