My MIL came armed with fabric and patterns on her most recent visit. Am I spoiled or what? There was really no choice about what to sew, since Gracie selected her fabric from the pile as we sorted through it. We’d show her one piece and she would disdainfully toss it aside in favor of this retro Alexander Henry print.
The pattern was really nice to sew. If I made it again, I would finish all of my seams (don’t I always say that??). I am especially pleased with the facings and the line of buttons down the back. Nothing delights me more about a cute pattern than ease of wearing. We change clothes a lot around here.
And perhaps the other most delightful part about this dress was finding the perfect buttons at Windsor Button in Boston. They even came in the two sizes we needed! Whaddya think?
