Another pink princess dress done!
Simplicity 2709, view E, which features a ruffled skirt, puffed, elasticated sleeves and a square neckline. I made Myra a size 2, since she's sort of between sizes right now. The only alteration I made was to narrow the SA on the neckline to tighten it up a little, as she has somewhat narrow shoulders. The shell fabric is a cotton jacquard from FFC and the lining is acetate from FabricMart. The princess applique is by Dritz and was purchased at Joann.
After the lining was inserted, I constructed and set in the sleeves, which I finished with the serger since the sleeves aren't sheer, then finished by attaching the bottom ruffle as the last step.
I think this was the most I've changed up a pattern. I really just ended up ignoring the instructions completely and doing it my own way. This is definitely the most complex garment that I've constructed without instructions. It made me realize how far I've come. Ready for Marfy? Maybe not, but I am definitely gaining confidence!
