It was a delight to sew this dress for Anna and the doll dress for her doll Jessica. I used McCalls 2590 for Anna's dress and Simplicity 4654 for Jessica's. They are very similar except that the McCall's pattern has an A-Line skirt and the sleeves are gathered, while the Simplicity pattern has a gathered skirt and the sleeves fit without gathering. :-P
I added the ribbon because I thought it just "tied it together" better than leaving it plain. :-) It ties in the back and looks so cute!
I am making another with the same patterns, but I am going to alter the skirt on Anna's so that it is gathered like the doll dress.
Just for fun, here are Anna and me (and Jessica the doll ;-) ).
