Miss P has a new dress and she calls it her "Blue Garden Dress".
The fabric, from Jennifer's Happy Land line, was leftover from the backing of one of the quilts I made for her. Miss P loves the fabric so we zipped out a dress this week. She chose the pattern from my vintage collection.
She likes that it is pretty enough for "fancy" wear but also looks great with jeans. Since it was SNOWING yesterday and warm weather seems to be taking its time this year we need some dresses that look good paired with pants. Miss P doesn't like to have "freezy legs" on the playground at recess and I don't blame her. I love her practical style.
It is also a great dress for playhouse time.
I used an old Simplicity 6764 pattern but instead of using a facing, I lined the bodice for a more "finished" inside.
I love that these old patterns never seem to go out of style.
