"When you're sixteen, going on seventeen"...

Next time you need to come up with a creative costume idea, make yourself a costume that looks like Liesl's Dancing Dress from the Sound of Music! I used the beautiful pattern that is available at www.edelweisspatterns.com and ended up with one of my favorite costumes I've ever made! You can see from the photos that this design has the same billowy sleeves, circle skirt, and fitted bodice that Sound of Music fans have loved for the last 45 years!
