Girls' Romantic Era Dress

I made the most adorable dress today, from the Romantic Era. I made it in a size 2, which I know my daughter won't be able to wear, but it was the size I had fabric for. I used a beautiful vintage fabric in browns, creams and greens (and I found a little blue while I was working with it too). It'a cute little twirly dress. It's from the Sense And Sensibility Girls' Romantic Dress pattern.

So far, I think this is one of my favorites. It's small, it's cute, it was relatively easy, and it's just flat out adorable! I intend to make some cute little pantaloons to go under, and then hopefully I will be able to sell it for a good amount. I'd love to make one of those pettiskirts to go under it too, since it has such a great flare to it, but I can't seem to find any decent patterns yet. I'll have to figure something out.

Nah, I've never been much of a nester. I have enough to do without trying to nest :)
