Victory over The Dress!

After working on this dress for three months (on and off), I finally finished it last night!!  After receiving a sewing machine for Christmas from hubby, I have made some crayon rolls, a bumper pad for Skylar's crib, a pillow case for her toddler-size pillow, and now, a dress!  The dress was by far the hardest thing to make and was actually a pretty sophisticated pattern. Needless to say, I was grateful for Ken's mom and granny for offering up advise and hands-on help! 
Here is the full-length.
The top- you can see the ruffles that cross over the front and the little sleeves (they were the devil!)
The gords in the skirt help it stand out. (Skylar is doing her version on Marilyn...)

And the back!
