Kate's blue dress

Here is Kate's dress, from Simplicity 7667- almost done, except for the sleeve hem. I made this pattern for her last month, in black & pink. This is a pretty easy pattern to put together, even with the ric rac in the collars and the piping at the front of the bodice. I remembered to put the back zip in before sewing the front to the back, so it went much easier than Ana's dress!

Here's a closeup of the bodice with the brown piping:

The trim on Kate's dress is vintage (except for the bottom lace), from my grandmother.

If you click through and look at the largest size photo of the back of the blue ric rac package, you can read the Wright's "Does your child sew?" offer on the package. ;-) The hem is lace from MJ Trim, and is a very pale blue despite look white below.

The Easter dresses turned out cute. I was wondering how you would end up using the prints.
