Alcala De Henare...
I made this dress for my four years old girl based on the Louisa Drop-Waist Dress pattern. I changed the skirt section to a pleated one. I hope you can see in the photos that I tried to match the bodice seams with the pleats (I don’t know why, but it was really important for me to do that). I also added a ribbon to the neckline and to where the skirt begins, and put two little bows, one in the left side of the front and one in the upper back, closing the neckline where the zipper ends. As this dress was made from a fine wool fabric, I lined the bodice too.
wool, grosgrain ribbon
