The twirly baptism dress

Every little girl needs to feel like the princess she is, and this dress does just that. This pattern has been in my sewing room for a while. I always thought it would be a cute dress for a flower girl dress, but it never happened.

What it did happen for is my granddaughters baptism dress.  She had asked me to make her one. Of course, I said I would.  She wanted a yellow sash, but other than that, I was free to do what I wanted.

This dress has pleats instead of gathers.  In the petticoat that attaches to the dress, there is a total of 656 inches of gathered tulle.

I knew the dress was full, but was not aware of how full, until the photographer spread the dress out.  I love it as does she.  This dress also has a great twirl factor.

Her little sister has requested the same dress for her baptism,  but she wants a pink sash.  The pattern for this dress is now out of print, but is Butterick 5705.  Can I make a recommendation?   When buying a pattern you think you will love, but it in all the size combinations. I am sad that I can't get it in bigger sizes.
