We chose the fabric to go along with the sweater that my daughter already had and that really limited our options. The dress is still cute enough and I'm not unhappy with it, but it isn't everything I was hoping it would be. Using a solid pink for some of the details would have been ideal, but of course I didn't have the right color in my stash and I wasn't able to work in a trip to the fabric store before the dress needed to be finished. The fact that my local Fabricland is 45 minutes away now has been really irritating lately.
I'll be making this dress again in a solid or more subtle print, but likely not until summer.
