This is a fairly classic design to sew for any occasion, in a bright and coloured version, or a more dressy one for parties...
The large collar, pointed at the front, gives a well behaved look to even the most playful of little girls.
Even Hannah appears Sereine here, although she was bouncing around with her new friends!
On the sides, a panel of contrasting fabric allows you to play with different fabrics.
The collar continues its original shape to the back. It is trimmed with a pretty bow with ties.
The dress is fully lined for extra comfort.
Fabrics used for this example:
Black wool: L'ouvrage des dames
