I used Simplicity 2777 for my very small 14 year old daughter. This is a crinkle gauze and I washed and dried it before using it because I knew that it would accidentally end up in the drier some time. I had to go back to the store to pick up more fabric because of the shrinkage and I ended up using about 8 1/2 yards for the smallest size.
The pattern calls for 2" wide novelty ribbon braid for the neckline. I couldn’t find any so I made an opening for the ribbon to pass through and left it at that. I had to shorten the length by a couple inches.
I accidentally sewed one sleeve together inside out and didn’t notice until after everything was done. I will have to go back and fix it sometime. Also due to the stretchy nature of the fabric, I ran out of lace. You can’t really see it but along the bottom there is about 4-5 inches without lace. I would recommend buying extra lace.
