Child's Size 40's Dress

So how cute is this going to be? I'm recreating a dress that is pretty popular in my shop. In case you missed it here is the original inspiration picture.
I received a custom request to make a little girl's dress about a size 5 or 6. She is a photographer and wanted bright vibrant colors. I found this beautiful herringbone in aqua. The contrast pieces will be in white. Here are the pieces laid out.
It is weird working with such little pieces but I started sewing with Barbie Doll clothes so I'm no stranger to working with small pieces. I can't wait to see this on the little girl. It is an adorable dress. The white strip in the middle is just scrap for picture purposes. I will make piping to go around the bodice area.
I also really loved working with a bright color. My usual orders for this dress is black with either white or off white contrast pieces. Though for an upcoming order for this same dress I get to do pink with grey contrast pieces. I think it is going to really stand out.
