Spring Sun Dress

Here's a quick spring dress I sewed this week:
The lime green gingham is embroidered with pink butterflies. The pattern is McCalls #5615. I liked this pattern. The directions were easy to follow and the gathered bodice and waistband turned out really great. They add a lot of interest and detail. I made the dress a size 3 width and size 6 length and if I make this pattern again, I would add 3-4 more inches to the skirt. It barely hits her knees even with the size six length.
Total cost?
Pattern-$1 on sale at Joann's
Fabric-$1 at a yard sale
Elastic-maybe 10 cents?
A pretty cute dress for $2.10!
