Swishy Dress

I scooped up this pretty peach lace a few years ago at a sale and finally decided it would be Lily's first swishy dress.

I like this Simplicity 5006 pattern. I't so fast to whip up and it grows with the child. Lily has two of these sets now. 

I made it a wee bit roomy. The pantaloons still fall off a bit.

Lily doesn't mind that they're a bit big. She likes to run in the dress. I think because it makes a pretty noise.

She's pretty happy about the outfit....

I have enough lace and satin left to make up a skirt for Lily's Mom!
We'll see if it's an acceptable idea. Maggs isn't really a skirt girl.
