Great job. Cute princess. You are the lucky one. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to alter a teens cheerleader outfit. It was a Junior XL size (about a 14) and had to make it over to Woman's 22. The seam was not big enough. I had to get new fabric, a poly gabardine and cut a pattern from the original uniform. Then take all the school stuff of the original and put them on the new one. Got it done, and fit the girl great. Well three weeks into the season, she is loosing weight and the skirt is too big. At least we can take the waist in.

Hoping I didn't set a precedent. She's the oldest of 5!

Well it is a nice dress....I don't know how people sew lol, I can not understand the patterns and instructions, people laugh at me because I can quilt but not "sew", but you did a great job.
