Oh! So lovely!! love the dress, love how cute she looks!!!! love the pictures too!
Love this dress! And, your right about the instructions on some of the vintage patterns being complicated to follow.
oh my goodness, its so adorable! what a lovely dress and yes that pattern makes me a bit dizzy…i bow to your patience and skill in doing 9 buttonholes! her shoes are darling too.
My machine is pretty good at doing a basic buttonhole. It’s a Viking Freesia. I’d love to upgrade. I was thinking about that new Singer 160.
so lovely! A great pattern to have.
What a beautifully cute dress! Darla looks so sweet and happy in it. x
Oh I love this! So adorable! Vintage patterns are so much fun!
So cute! I love sailor dresses!
love, love this!!! How sweet, Your daughter is so lucky!
Thank you! Maybe someday she will notice!
This is so cute. And your daughter is adorable.. I love sailor dresses!!!What fun..
That little dress is just too cute. I’d love to have a daughter, just so I can dress her up in cute stuff…but who says I can’t just make a dress and give it to a momma who has a little girl? Hmm….the ideas are spinning I just LOVE vintage-style clothes, too Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather
Hi heather! You could always make a dress and give it to a shelter or some other charity. That would be so nice.
This is so darling! I love the vintage patterns but I’m not anywhere close to being experienced enough to try one! I love seeing them come to life on your blog!
Super cute ~ love the puff sleeves!! Following ~ right back at ya!!!! xoHeather
I LOVE sailor outfits!!! When my kids were little, sailor outfits were still around for special occasions, but only for boys. I adore this little dress!!!
Hi Pam! Funny my friend from south america always dressed her kids in them. Not so much here in the US.
This is precious! I want a grown up version of this for myself, lol.
Thanks for linking to Take-A-Look Tuesday – - you were featured today!!–Mandy, http://www.SugarBeeCrafts.com
This is absolutely adorable! You’re daughter is the cutest! I can’t wait to make clothes like this when I have children.
So cute! I love the little story :3
I love this post!
I need to start exploring vintage patterns. I love this little dress. I wish our fashion industry would revisit the apparel that children once wore years ago–so very appropriate compared to styles these days. Thank heavens we can sew, so we can dress our children in the manner we please!
The dress and Darla are absolutely adorable! I loved reading this post.
me encanta el estilo marinerohttp://mandarinacosturera.blogspot.com.es/
Oh she is adorable in that dress! What an angel.
What a gorgeous dress Justine! I cannot believe you had a pattern dated 1941 – how special! It looks so sweet on your gorgeous little girl My brother had a sailor top ( I think there was a pair of shorts to make it a set as well), and I loved wearing it although it was boyish hahaha
What a precious dress. I’d love to have you link these or any of your other projects to this week’s link party. Hope to see you there! http://thelifeofjenniferdawn.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-little-bird-told-me-link-party-50.html
