Simplicity 1443 UNCUT Vintage 50s Adorable Baby Infant Layette Sewing Pattern with Embroidery Transfer One Size

I’ve posted an infant dress from view 2 of this pattern.  I like it enough I decided to make it bigger.  My first try at making it a size two was so big that with the hem let down it fit a size 6.  I did a second one and got closer to size two.  The photo shows the dress before hemming.  I feel I am not done with these yet.  Sash maybe?   The smaller dress needs a brighter accent, but I am proud of the bias binding I zigzagged around the sleeve openings.  I make the neck opening with a casing and tie so the neckline is adjustable.  These dresses should grow at least 2 years.  Maybe more.

Any thoughts on the styling?  My idea is something between the simplicity of a pillowcase dress but more attractive than most peasant dresses.
