I made this dress for my niece back in February. I'm very happy at how it turned out plus my niece as ask to wear it... she just turn two. I did the view A of Simplicity's pattern #4647. I found it to be easy to do even with all that gathering... I mean serious gathering here. The only thing I did differently from the pattern is that I sewed the bottom of the sash to the bottom of the bodice because the sash just kept riding up.
Well there it is.
