Melissa is going on a class trip to Barkerville in a couple of weeks. They all have to dress in period costume so I took the opportunity to make her something. As an added bonus, I do have three girls so they can all wear this outfit when they have their turn.
Aside from purchasing the pattern, I didn't spend anything on the outfit. I've had the fabric on my shelf for quite a few years - it was given to me (do you recognize the fabric, Jennifer?) The apron fabric is from a sheet. Even the lace on the apron was from the sheet.
The pattern is a McCall's Costume pattern M9424. I used the pattern for the dress, but the apron is just my own 'design'. To be honest I just started cutting and ripping and sewing and this is how it turned out. :-)
She is very happy about the outfit and super excited about the trip.
