She was beaming today when she tried on her finished prairie dress. She plans on wearing it on a field trip in the near future. I think it turned out really cute. The bonnet is my favorite part, I considered making myself one to wear this summer, but I think people would think I was strange... For those who missed my earlier post, I used the McCall's pattern 9424 for the dress and the bonnet. The bonnet had some hand sewing that I wasn't anticipating, but the finished product is adorable. The pattern came with the directions for a pinafore, but this little girl requested a half apron instead, so I used the pattern for the ruffle on the bottom, but had to finish it on my own. I can't wait to hear about her field trip!
