I had a scraps of fabric from the Mother Lode of fabric from my Special Friend.
Looking through my large stash of patterns, I decided to use McCalls 9203.
One view has buttons in the center of the front bodice, while the other has rows of ribbons.
I decided to make a pleat with a piece of matching fabric to look like an overlay.
I rather thought the back should have been the front.
I despise doing plackets. Sometimes they work good on knits, most of the time they don't work right on cottons.
When using a variety of fabrics in a garment, I don't match button styles and sometimes not even colors. This is a great way to use my button stash collected over the years from used clothing. Am I the only person that has a fascination for buttons?
So Lily, Congratulations on a new baby sister, and I hope you like your new dress?
Your Mommy said you wore a size 3T. This dress is long but I sure don't remember 3T being this big. Lily, you are growing too fast!
