Sweet and simple
and oh, so classic.
For Lili's Easter dress,
I used New Look 6118.
However, I altered the pattern,
because I can never just sew the
pattern the way it is!
I altered the back of the pattern
so that I could use 4 buttons in a square.
The lower two buttons are covered by the bow.
The directions of the pattern
show the back placket being folded back on itself
over the lining.
I felt this was uneccesary
and looked unfinished
on the inside.
Changing the construction the way
I have done this,
makes for a more interesting
and finished back.
And all the seams are inclosed
the way I prefer.
I simply adore the silhouette!
The fabric is a precious baby bunny print
by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse.
Ahnalin picked it out for darling Lili.
I can hardly wait to see little Lili wear it
on Easter Sunday!
and Happy Holy Week!
