Description

This little girl’s dress is a reincarnation of a long-sleeved, long blouse of mine. I liked the pintuck detail, but the fabric was so fine that the blouse didn’t retain its shape well and I usually felt frumpy in it. It sat in my stash for a while until I made “The Dress I’d Love to Wear” (see my studio) for my niece for my wedding. She loved it, and I wanted her to have a version she could wear to the park. This dress is made from the same Burda Style Magazine pattern (06/10, model 150), except that, taking advantage of the preexisting pintucks and button placket, I cut the front using the lining pieces. The gathered skirt is the lower half of the blouse, which dictated its length, but it was actually just about perfect. The bodice is self-lined, the skirt is lined in natural cotton. My apologies for the darkish photos and my niece’s disheveled hair. I took these photos while my wife was trying to get me into the car to head back from vacation :).
