Definitely a go-to pattern for Bella's dresses. Something about the pert collar and sleeves and the tailored cut is just right for her. This one is made up in a brushed cotton-poly twill (I'm guessing) that someone gave me.
To make it more interesting I used a striped cotton to face the collar and the front band. The undercollar rolls out just enough to make it looked piped, which is fun! And the little flash of color in front goes a long way towards making it fun, and not just utilitarian. Though it is that. It doesn't even need ironing.
