This baby-doll style dress was made for my daughter, Gwendolyn. I actually made two of these with the first one being to big so I gave it away to a friend. Believe it or not I had enough fabric to do another dress, and I got this one right. This fabric was one with different border prints on each selvedge edge, it is brown with a beautiful design all over in fall colors. I played with the fabric a bit to get the designs lined up around the hem and the bodice. The pattern I used was a Butterick from the 60’s, #6175. The pattern had sleeves that my daughter did not want so I eliminated them. It zips in the back. Gwendolyn added her own belt.
Silky, flowing brown print fabric. Zipper, brown thread.
