A Sundress for Daisy: Vintage Simplicity 1291

We are loving this pattern this spring--it has wonderful shaping through the bodice, easy to construct and very effective. Also, I'm able to leave the zipper off and so it sews up fast.

Daisy's wearing it in a peachy quilting cotton trimmed with turquoise velvet.

Tuxedo bow, always a yes.

1. Beautiful young lady in a lovely dress!

2. My copy of Tartine Bread arrived today. Thank you for writing about it! Oo la la, it's going to be fun. Have you seen this video of a Chad Robertson masterclass?
Thanks again, Anna

how cute! My mom just made some dresses for my sisters out of t-shirts and some material from Jo Ann's! It's so satisfying to make your own dresses.

Don't you just love vintage patterns?
I think it came out really well :) You'll have to make a petticoat to go with it too!

I love the fabric and her jacket (or is that a cape?). Anyway, thankfully you have daughters that allow you to sew for them! :)

The dress is so sweet! But really--I love her bare feet, her glasses, her long flowy hair. How in the world do you stand it? She's so dear.
