Lucy's Blue Dress



About 5 years ago Becca gave me this blue fabric and asked me to make a dress for Lucy out of it. I used a 1969 Simplicity Pattern 8171 size 7 for my lovely grand daughter, Lucy. I lined the bodice instead of using a neck facing. The bodice is fitted with darts in front and back and features a Peter Pan collar. I used a sleeve pattern from another Simplicity pattern and added trim down the front, across the bodice front at the waist, on the sleeves and at the hem. The flower was also made from the trim and accented with a store bought gingham flower.
