Simplicity 5695, ahem, again

I don't tend to collect UFOs, but this dress has been hanging out in my sewing bag for months, so I decided it was time to finish it.
I've made this pattern and variations of it quite a few times, so no surprises.  You can see the entire collection here.  I actually started this one as a demo dress for my sewing group, so whenever we'd get together, I'd use it to demonstrate the next steps in the pattern.  The other ladies both finished their dresses long ago, but this poor thing was forgotten!
Since I used this dress to demonstrate, I did pretty much stick to the pattern, except for a tiny bit of ribbon trim on the bodice.  The flowers are so busy you can barely see it!
Myra loves it!  She's a sucker for a new dress, especially a twirly one.  The part of Prince Charming will be played by Curious George.

    This one might be my fave! She is growing.

  4. Your little girl is getting so big. The dress, as always, is fabulous. Is it warm enough there to wear that yet?
