Description

I chose the pattern from an original book from 1950ies and constructed a pattern.
When I dressed up a childr, the first thought was: now we got a little “Alice in Wonderland” prototype, just in pink (nothing to do: one of the favourite colors of my daughter). I am satisfied with the result, I believe that each such project makes my sewing skills better, and I am more and more successful during the process.
Now you can assess the final result by looking at the photos. In short: the dress is made of cotton, in white parts was used organza fabric. For fastening is used a hidden zipper.
In addition, there was made a petticoat of white organza fabric that keeps the fullness of the dress.
On the left side the joint of skirt and the top was treated with a lace. Collar and sleeve seams were treated with oblique thread tape. Since I do not have an overlock, edges were sewn, using a zig – zag stitch or overlock stitch, but in fabric seams – pitched thread. This time I tried a slight accent with thin lace. The rim of the skirt was adorned with lace edge.
