Milla in her dress

I'm told it's pinned at the back, but I expected it to be too big, so that's okay.

Does it look any bigger, do you think?

Birthday Dresses for Milla

 Niece #4 turned 4 last Saturday. I left it a bit late to smock anything for her, but a couple of weeks was enough time to make these Sense and Sensibility 1958 Girls' Part Dresses. I even inserted zips! First was the yellow poly-cotton with polka dots.

 Then the maroon velvet(een). I suspect this one may end up in dress ups, but most kids this age love the feel of velvet so I figure she'll have fun with it whatever she does.
 And MIL whipped up this little crinoline, because this little girl, at least, will love having her skirt poofed out!
