Fabulous! So very pretty! Isn't it great that dresses like that have never been out of style. They're always adorable.

That looks so sweet! I wish my dd was still little enough to wear those kinds of things. I did not have time to sew when she was that size!

The hat and bloomers are just ADORABLE also!

Much nicer gift than chocolate. And she'll look better than all the foil wrapping in her new outfit.

Very nice !I'm sure she will be adorable in it...I use to sew for my DD when she was little...I liked to make her capes and hats to match.

She'll be sweeter than all the Easter goodies. Beautiful.
