|Could I get any luckier with the adorableness factor of this little model?|

I've had some feedback on the pattern that people get suspicious while knitting the skirt. They think "this skirt is WAY too long to fit my little girl!" But you have to remember, this dress has an empire waist. If the skirt doesn't look ridiculously long, your dress is going to turn out as a mini.
So, trust the pattern, have a great time working this bodice (it really is a lot of fun to see the smocking take shape) and make your favorite little girl a very special dress to wear this summer!
