Toddler Summer Tucked Dress



Toddler Summer Dresses pattern.
I love this dress!

The Yoke features Lace Edging attached to Swiss Insertion.

I teach this dress as a class for Guilds and shops.
It's a great class.  There is a tucked Yoke and Skirt on wonderful fabric.  The Swiss Trim is rolled and whipped to the hem.  And You learn about construction of a sleeveless Yoke dress with special techniques such as a hidden seam at the yoke embellished with Swiss Beading.

This dress includes my favorite embroidery stitch -
 Featherstitching along with Old Fashioned Bullion Roses.

This is the fancy version of Toddler Summer Dresses.  Perfect for Easter, Summer Birthdays or Beach Pictures.

It was so wonderful catching glimpses of what everyone was making! It sounded like a great time in the classroom.

I sure hope Jeannie makes a video on how to put the bodice together. I don't think I'll ever remember to do it again. I love this little dress and the class was fabulous. I even embroidered! If you have a chance to take a class with her, do it. She is an outstanding teacher.
