Beneath the braid the tunic is gathered then it is pulled in at the waist with elastic.

Made up of 3 ruffles.
The skirt has an elasticated waist for extra comfort.
The bottom of the skirt is lined.
The skirt lining is visible at the front.
A girls dressing up outfit that makes a change from princess.
The theme can be changed very easily depending on the fabrics used:
