This was originally a dress for a Valentines Tea Party. My daughter picked out the fabric. I have several patterns for myself from that era but since instructions are sparse compared to now I thought doing a child dress would be a good start. There was a pattern for little applique’ flowers but I opted for sewing on pre-made ones. There’s a self-bias strip around the neckline and I put a zipper in at the shoulder upon the realization I couldn’t get it over her head even though the dress itself is a size too large. For some added interest I did two rows of scalloped stitching with my machine.
I think I want to make this dress again but with a better idea of what I’m getting into.
