This dress view is the actual reproduction that inspired the pattern. I made short sleeves for a little girly dress but the original had long sleeves and is part of the LSU Textile collection.
The Dress that I copied this from belonged to a little boy. Yes, that's right….it was worn by a little boy.
All the materials on this particular dress are antiques I had. I am happy to tell you that there are plenty of "new" laces, trim and fabrics that can be used to make this beautiful garment.
I suggest: Swiss Batiste, French cotton Laces and Swiss trim.
I think the neatest thing about this dress is that it only looks like a Round Yoke Dress. It is really a Square Yoke Dress that has a ruffle sewn onto the yoke to make it appear to be a Round Yoke Dress.
The pattern includes size 1,2 and 3 and makes a beautiful Easter Dress or Flower Girl Dress.
A little bit of history is sewn into this fabric.
