What more can I really add to that photo? She loves it. She wanted to sleep in it tonight.
It was a royal pain to make. The lace pattern is simple enough, but getting it to look OK and have a bit of a ruffle to it wasn't easy. Especially since I started doing it one way, frogged it and decided to do it another, then kept forgetting to do it the new way and having to frog it yet again to fix it. That's one reason the skirt is above-the-knee, not a length I usually let her wear (it's an almost totally openwork skirt, which means it's an at-home-only piece). It's made specifically for her to dance in, though.
The top was much easier. The skirt was the work of several days, the top took maybe an hour and half or two hours. Being an at-home-only outfit, again, made my job easier, because I don't have to worry about it keeping to my usual standards.
Now, of course, I have to make Linda a similar outfit, because she kept demanding this one, LOL.
