Sunday dress with peter pan collar

Added Oct 31, 2010

Helsinki, Finland






I sew this light cotton dress few months ago to wear in my little sister’s confirmation party. As usual I finished it only just in time! I had few troubles with the dress; one was that I couldn’t decide if I wanted the dress to be loose or fitted. Finally I ended up sewing straps on the both sides of the dress so I can tie them as tight as I like:) I didn’t follow any pattern.
I also went to hairdresser’s the day before yesterday; it’s always so exiting to have new haircut!

Material Notes

Light cotton, white cotton, zipper




Garment Type

    This is so adorable. I want one now! Does the collar continue to the back as well?
