I've patterned the design after and actual old child's dress that I found on Etsy. The dress is so sweet - made from old feedsacks with a yellow floral design. It has a bit of lace trim and mis-matched buttons all down the back. I can just picture mom - maybe during the Depression - making this sweet little dress for her daughter - such a poignant thought.
Anyway, in this photo I'm sewing the collar sections on. Then there will be the lining for the bodice which will finish the neck and back edges; sewing the side seams, finishing the armholes with self bias, and finally, the hem.
