Boutique Chic Style

Hello dear friends. 'Another post for National Sewing Month. Pictured above is a boutique chic style dress and head band that I made for my granddaughter Macey (our model) back in the summer. The fabrics are 100% cotton. The pattern is Simplicity 2171, view A, with a slight variation. The pattern calls for tied knots through button holes on the bodice front, but mine has the shoulder straps sewn to the bodice front and extended longer through a button hole in the bodice back. The idea came from another person, whose blog I cannot recall the name. 'Also left off the apron. The matching ruffled-leg pants are also 100% cotton, in a heavier weight white with the same green and white floral fabric as the dress bodice. This is such a darling pattern, isn't it? To see the back view of this dress and the pattern difficulty rating, follow the link below my signature.
Above is the back view of Simplicity 2171. The shoulder straps are tied into a bow through a single button hole. The head band (pictured on Macey) has a cute flower decoration with a covered button center. The pattern includes the dress, head band, and the pattern for the pants leg ruffle. Granddaughter Macey + this outfit = extra cuteness!
This pattern is a bit complicated to construct, so its rating is:
