I did some more work on the vintage dress I started quite a long time ago. It now has some cute flower-shaped buttons!
My friend let me raid her pattern stash after she adopted her daughter, since she'll be too busy to do much sewing. Of course, this dress is for little Abigail Rose. Abi isn't even a year old yet. I'd guess this dress will fit her at about age 3. It's a princess line and the skirt part is really whirly-twirly. It needs a crinoline, LOL! The pattern dates back to 1954. I retraced it because the pieces are really too old and delicate to use directly. You can tell the pattern is old--the envelope offers yardage on fabric that is 36 inches wide. I'm not sure they even sell that now!
