|I am so pleased with how it turned out.|
|The three pleats on the bodice would show up much better in a solid fabric.|
|Back view. I probably should add a hook and eye to the top.|
Since I am hoping the dress will fit for a few summers I did include a nice 3" hem along the bottom. I think it would also be cute to add rickrack or lace for this dress. I didn't really change the pattern at all but I did use my serger to finish all seams. Overall this was a nice pattern that would work well as a fancy dress or an everyday dress. I am sure with two young nieces and a daughter that I will be sewing this one again!
Do you have any favorite dress patterns for a toddler? I am hoping to sew Evangeline a few dresses this fall. She is a size 18 months in ready to wear. Thanks!
