The fabric is %100 Rayon Challis. It is very soft but also very slinky. The only difficultly that I ran across was getting my hems to look nice. If I make anymore of this pattern I will definitely make a size three-- size two fits but won't fit for very long.
I used some vintage red glass buttons that my mom got at an estate sale. I really like the little bit of interest to break up that rose pink. I wish I had waited on the button holes and gone out to get matching thread. From far away that white thread doesn't stand out too badly but up close it drives me a little crazy!
It is so much fun to make her clothes and for the time being she really loves to wear them! I will be sad if/when that changes.
