Summer Dresses

 Purple pintucks and polka dots.  I made this one a size larger so she can wear it all summer.

To get the pintucks, I cut the bodice a size larger than the rest of the dress.  I then put in five lines of pintucks to even up the fabric.

This one makes me think of The Sound of Music.  With just a hint of sweet little girl eyelet lace.

 The lace was given to my mother from her mother when I was a little girl.  Mama sent it to me last week.  I know Katy Rynne is too little to know the sentimental touch that it adds, but I think it's just so sweet.

  1. I love both dresses but the green one is most special! Thank you for 'dressing up' your little girl with Mimi's lace.
