NL 6577

I made View B in a yellow dot cotton print from Walmart.
The sewing was easy and straightforward. I did not use the instructions much. The only thing I did different was to add some trim around the waist area. It is made in a size 4. I did not
add the underskirt. The baby seemed to like the dress. She grabbed it and ran off with it because I said I wanted to take a picture of her in it! Hilarious! I will probably make it up again. It has several variations that I like. The bodice is self-lined and is attached to a yoke for the neck and shoulders. The skirt has pleats in the front and back and there's a zipper opening in back. The skirt also has a ruffle around the buttom and the hem is topstitched. Super easy and perfect for summer. I will be entering this project in the PR Contest-Sewing for Children.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Father's Day Weekend.
