That skirt right there was 90% of the headache.
The skirt gave me fits. I just don't have enough experience to know how to support the rosettes properly. I put all sorts of heavy weight tulle and netting under that skirt and I still could barely get the pouf on that side. She gets to wear the dress again in April and May so I have time to get it figured out.
Edited to add:
We took some more pictures of the dress this fall and I thought it might be fun to add them to this post. In case you missed my earlier discussion of it, this dress is an original. We drew the design and devised a pattern by working with three other patterns and my own design work. The design was dramatic and playful--a perfect fit for my daughter.
