I had been browsing Etsy for the perfect vintage dress pattern for Laura's school dress. I found this one from 1965. I LOVE how innocent and sweet the dress is and besides the buttons, it was pretty easy to make. Her favorite feature are the "treasure pockets."
Ours isn't quite as short as the pattern called for, but I thought that it would get me a little more wear out of it. Well, at least a few extra months maybe.....My sleeves were also a little too large and the sewing is definitely amateurish but it made me so proud when her teacher commented on her pretty dress and she beamed and said, "My mommy made it!!" :)
The fabric is Michael Miller's Children at Play in Meadow Pink.
