Added Dec 18, 2012
I designed this pattern for a children’s dress, but decided to make one for myself. I added some elastic to the waist and a sash, in an effort to make it more womanly.
The neckline is elastic and it is made from 100% Kona Cotton.
My husband took the pictures, today was a beautiful, unusually warm December afternoon.
I also am wearing my detachable Peter Pan collar that I designed and made.
Kona Cotton, Braided elastic (neckline), clear sew-on elastic (for waist). peppermint stripe vintage fabric used for the sash.
