One of my goals for 2012 is to actually sew with some of the vintage patterns I’ve collected. Yesterday I made a decent start at it, using a simple pattern from 1967 that I bought from Amy at our guild’s fabric yard sale this weekend. I used an old print from Moda Wonderland (I think) for the dress and a yellow DS Quilts print for the facing.
It’s intended to be worn over bloomers, but looks cute with leggings, too! I’m not crazy about the way it bunches in the front near the neckline but I’m guessing as we get nearer to summer and she grows that will size out correctly. It’s also even around the hem, but the only front on shot I could get of Miss Eloise was showing me her chalky hand.
