Confession: In grade school I used to put on my mom’s old floral dresses and sit in the back yard, attempting to sew doll clothes by hand, pretending that I was in the back of a covered wagon. I was obsessed with Laura Ingles Wilder. Whenever I put this dress on, I go back to then. I think it’s some combination of the long sleeves, the floral print, and the swishy skirt.
I drafted this out using this tutorial . Overall I’m really happy with how it turned out!
I blogged about it a little more here
