I am going to share the "sisters' dresses", first, and Olivia's next time.
I shortened the bodice length by 5/8", giving a little more of a higher waist, allowing to fit the child a little longer. I also changed the neckline of the bodice to more of a jewel neckline. The bodices were lined with cotton batiste, the skirts were left unlined.
The sashes were made with silk dupioni. I added thread loops so the sashes had a chance of staying in place and not falling off the girls. My hope is that the dresses fit and that mum knew she was being thought of and prayed for in her time of need. If these children are brought to mind for you, please pray for their family, thank you.
