Lucky, lucky me, I was the recipient of several vintage patterns for children. I just finished this adorable dress using some apple fabric from JoAnne's. It is a 3 section, bias, flared dress with a center back zipper and short raglan sleeves with elastic casings. It is McCall's 9084 from 1967....the year I was born, so......does that make me vintage too? LOL!
Dress was very easy to do and I was so proud with how well the zipper came out. I despise doing zippers so it was a major accomplishment for me. Infact, I am tackling another vintage dress with a zipper in it too. I love how loose and flowy the dress is, even if it is a bit mumu-ish. It is a little on the short side (wow, were the hemlines short then) so the next time I will add a couple of inches.
I thought the front needed something, so I added a green gingham ribbon bow and also put the same ribbon on her socks. It looks better in person, but in the pics it looks like the ribbon needs to be bigger or something.
Not the best pics, end of a long day and one very tired little model. Forgive the wrinkles, like I said end of a long day.
Okay, now that you know what the dress looks like, loose and flowy right? Why would the pattern state right on the front 'Not Suitable For Chubby Girls' Just makes me chuckle..lol.
