Of course she says she loves it - smart kid! Positive feedback keeps the dresses coming...
- the pattern is # 148 from BurdaStyle 06/2010, in a lengthened size 110cm. Exactly as for the last dress I posted. And the extra length is exactly as requested, long enough that the boys at kindy won't catch sight of her undies when she's running around (this seems to be a new concern).
- the fabric is a very lightweight voile that I picked up recently at Lincraft (they still have heaps - also in a blues/purples version). It's fully lined (not part of the pattern) in a coordinating pale pink voile.
- instead of 2 pieces of angled lengthwise trim as suggested in the pattern, this time around I handstitched a little piece of daisy trim on the neckline - a small piece of guipere lace, also from Lincraft (but quite expensive for them).
Look where I got the idea for the neckline trim from: a gorgeous Little Leona by Leona Edmiston t-shirt my daughter was given for Christmas:
I think I prefer the finish on this fully lined version to my earlier one with bias bound edges - makes for such a straightforward but neat-looking little dress....
