This dress was made to help a friend who was helping a friend who is helping her neighbor. The neighbor family sadly lost a member of their family when the father of the household committed suicide in their garage. The mother and three girls (ages roughly 4-12) remain. The friend of the neighbor submitted their story to a radio station and won. As part of the winnings, the mother and girls get a night on the town this weekend, and the friend wanted the girls to have custom made dresses, so she contacted my friend A. A asked me for help because I sew very quickly, so I made the dress for the 4 year old. I used a Butterick pattern that A provided. In her stash of fabric, I found the floral shantung and melon crinkle chiffon. From my own stash I used the satin, cotton, and zipper. The embroidery design was a freebie from Embroidery Library. It took me all day today to serge three areas of the dress, breaking one serger in the process. I hope the little one likes this.
