This little summer dress is finally finished.  It’s progress was interrupted by a variety of issues, all outside the sewing room, but now  Penny  has been removed from my UFO list.

I have always loved this pattern and finally got around to making it.

 

nNBst-CloKs-pdtFX-WSPennyI always favor projects with Madeira applique’ and to my eye the best feature is the bodice back.  But I doubt I could convince 3 yo granddaughter Vivian Rose to walk backwards to show it to best advantage.  Then again, she is usually on the run, so I guess the front and back have equal opportunity to be viewed.

Liberty of London tana lawn was used for the Madeira borders which look so crisp against white Swiss pique’.  Whipstitch piping makes a nice trim with this print.  Actually, whipstitch piping is a nice trim for almost anything.  I love this stuff.

I know my daughter will love this dress for her little daughter.  But will Vivi like it?  Her personal fashion statements are heavily influenced by My Little Kitty.

This is how she rolls. Can’t you almost hear the music?
