The biggest differences are that this pattern includes long sleeves and has a casing on the outside waistline to cinch in some of the fullness. My husband thought the sleeves were a bit poofy, but I think they look wonderfully comfortable.

Danielle has been wearing uniforms to pre-K, so we haven't really purchased "regular" clothes for her for the fall. So I'm super excited that I've had the chance to make some long-sleeve dresses for church. I normally am behind in my sewing, not ahead of the seasons!
|Let's pretend this picture is her looking|
proud of me for sewing ahead, mkay?
I never intended these two fabrics to go together, since they are the same scale, but I think it really works for this dress since the tiers are all the same height. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out.

not really shorter in the front like it looks)
I will definitely be making this one again, though I may mash it up with another pattern so that I can skip the waistline casing. Or I could just slim the bodice down and take a little width off the top tier. We'll see. I use patterns so I don't have to do the figuring myself :)
