Before she became my swap partner, Jessi sold me a vintage pattern through her Etsy shop. (Isn’t it funny how things work out?) I sprinted to the quilt shop and picked out some fun Michael Miller fabrics (the Dick & Jane series), then came home and traced it and cut it out.

And there it sat. For months. Ah, yes. Another Stash Game No-Sew.

I finally made it a priority and I’m so glad I did. I love it! I’m already planning to make a couple more, including some short-sleeved versions for the spring and summer. Luckily, it’s a bit generous in sizing so it should continue to fit for several more months. Can’t you see it in a pretty swiss dot fabric with lace trim?

A close-up of the bodice tucks. I was a little nervous sewing them but love how they turned out.

“Hey! My feet are dirty! Maybe I should have listened to Mom and put my shoes on before running outside.”

Actually, looking at these pics remind me that I need to add a hook-and-eye closure above the zipper on the back of the dress. Hmmmm … actually I think that’s why we tried it on without: I have none and have failed to buy one in approximately 700 trips to the store between then and now.

    I can’t sew my way out of a cardboard box, but I am in awe of anyone who can. Beautiful dress (and a beautiful little girl too).
