pink dress

 {prepare your eyes for lots of pink}

November & December's pattern for the Carefree Clothes for Girls sew-along was the dress with contrasting patches.

 my daughter wanted a pink dress, would you call the color Honeysuckle ?  (Pantone 2011 color of the year)
 instead of adding the contrasting patches to the dress i made a pompom trim keyhole neckline & added a belt
 one sewn button loop in the front
 sewn button loops tutorial found here
 6 sewn button loops in the back
 with a vintage ribbon belt
 with a homemade pompom trim belt
 with the vintage ribbon layered on top of the pompom trim belt
which belt do you prefer with the dress ?
