This outfit was inspired by a box of lace! An old friend of mine was cleaning out the attic of an elderly friend and came across a box of antique lace from her sewing days. The elderly lady just told her to toss it, but my friend sent it to me. I used to make doll clothing for our girls when they were growing up and she thought I might like the lace for my sewing projects. She was right! I had some vintage mint colored lawn in my stash and coupled it with some of the laces in the box and put little design details into the dress such as lace insertion and twin-needle pintucks. A beautiful outfit of days gone by….
