Miranda reminds of a delicious little petit four you might find at a specialty bake shop. With ribbons of icing and delicate little hand piped flowers with those tiny little edible pearls. I cannot tell you how much fun it is to make this dress. Like my Natalie dress, Miranda features a beautiful neckline, a low cut back and a very full skirt. However, Miranda is much different in that this dress has a full attached sash and bands of fabric insets in the skirt along with all of the instructions for making all the sweet little embellishments.

I have made three of these dresses. There are a lot of mistakes in the instructions and with the measurements that are given. The dresses turned out beautiful after I made the adjustments that were needed. I used my machine to sew on all the buttons and flowers at the same time. That saved a lot of time.

I have made about 6 different olabelhe patterns and i have to say this one was not my favorite, The dress came out beautiful but there were alot of mistakes in the pattern, and the way she has you sew the stripes and then insert into the dress didn't make a bit of sense as the stripes were way bigger then the dress when cut according to the measurements, Also by the time i was done my above average height child was dragging 2 inches of dress on the floor, I ended cutting off 4 1/2 inches of the dress from the top. Also the sash was not nearly long enough to tie a nice bow, I ended up having to go buy some more fabric to make a longer sash.

Beautiful pattern, it works up beautifully done either as the pattern describes in multi colors or as a solid color. Makes little girls feel grown up in an easy and modest pattern!

Absolutely adorable! This pattern went together well and all the extra work on the embellishments was well worth it. I'm getting started early on Easter dresses and will be making another one to match for a baby sister. Can't wait to see how beautiful they will look.

This dress is just beautiful on ! I made 2 of these for my son's wedding in September and everyone just loved the detail of all the flowers. It was very easy to put together, although the detail of all the flowers did take lots of time. Between making them and then hand sewing everything on the dress.
I enjoyed making this dress. It looks great with the sash or without. I did make it in linen as it was an outside wedding and it looked great. The girls loved wearing it too.

I made two if these beautiful dresses for my daughters for Easter. The pattern was great with lots of pictures, but there are a few things to watch out for: 1- check the sizing on the bodice. The size 6 on my very slim 6 year old was too small, same for the 3 year old. 2- Sew the side seam for the skirt after sewing together all of the strips. This will ensure a nice side seam with no puckering. If the strips are not the exact same length and sewn wth exactly the same seam allowance, you will have problems. 3- I used a small zig-zag (more like a wobble) stitch to sew on the rick rack. So much faster than hand stitching and the zig zag in a matching thread was better than a straight stitch. 4- Yo yo maker! Worth the money for both sizes! Saved tons of time!
