I own two versions of this gown, the first from the year it came out, and one was a more recent purchase (because I'd lost the petticoat from my original - which since turned up - yay that!) and so I've had an opportunity to compare the two. The biggest change I found was in the ribbon stomacher. It changed size, and the ribbon also changed color, from a bright pink, to a more sort of lavender-ish pink. I thought this was interesting.
