Pioneer Dress Finished
What do you think? I know it looks like a night gown, but I followed the pattern exactly! I still need to make the apron and matching bonnet. I am very pleased with the outcome, and so was the little girl I made it for, her face lit up when she had it on. She is so excited to have a pink dress, very cute! I used the McCall's pattern 9424, see the picture here. The McCall's pattern was a little difficult to understand, especially the yoke part, but I was able to figure it out. I also made some errors while cutting my pieces out, but fortunately, I had just enough material left to make more pieces. On the pattern pieces, it says cut 2, but it really means you need 4 because you're supposed to cut the pieces out with the fabric folded in half. Keep checking back to see the completed outfit. There are also several projects waiting to be posted in April (they are gifts that can't be posted until they are given).
