I Love this dress! I wasn’t sure how this would turn out since I used a pattern from the 50’s to make this dress. But it turned out great and I can’t wait to make more.
I love all the details that I added and I really feel like it gives so much personality. I wanted to add more color so I made the collar, ruffles and sleeve cuffs a different material. I also added a small ribbon bow to the front in between the collar. I made this dress much longer than the pattern did but I really wanted that length since Alice Jane is growing so fast and I really want this to last next year as well. I’m super happy that I finished this dress in time for Christmas day.
Needless to say Alice Jane loves this dress and had fun posing for these pictures as you can probably tell.
