This is made from Simplicity 3902 with only minor alterations. I put more ric rac than they call for -- I wanted it on the sleeves, hemline and all the way around the neck and I don't regret it. This is a fairly simple pattern going to gether pretty quickly and it has more "twirl" than other patterns I've made similar. I made this for my 5 year old's birthday present from me -- complete with shorts to go underneath so the other kids won't know what color her underwear is every day at school. She LOVES this one.
