S2391 - Modified

I've spent a lot of time lately trying to revamp the Princess's summer wardrobe. She's grown so much over the past few months and she can't fit anything so I thought I'd make her a bunch of easy breezy pillow case dresses.  I first made this dress here:

The dress came out cute and she looked cute in it but I felt like it could be improved to wear a little better. The dress was a little wide on the shoulders and I saw her adjusting the straps a couple of times during the day. I also wanted the ruffle to be fuller and thanks to Candice of Regal Appeal, I was able to improve the finish on the back opening.  After making the necessary adjustments, this is what I came up with.

I realize this may be a process so I'll see how this one wears and see if it needs further adjustment. 

So she wore her dress today and she loved it.  In fact, I had to convince her it wasn't a good idea to sleep in it.  I think we have a winner so I'll be making her a few more.  I love how it's so easy to put together and to dress her yet she looks so pulled together.
