This dress was made for my daughter to wear on Christmas day. I made it from a beautiful white cotton with eyelet detailing. The pattern was from the Japanese magazine Cucito - Summer 2010 edition. The original pattern doesn't have any openings, but I changed it and had a full center back opening done up with gold buttons. And because the material was sheer, I fully lined the inside with white cotton poplin.
It looked very nice for half the day until she got given a store bought dress from her Teta, which she loved and wore for the rest of Christmas...and then all the following day!!! So the handmade dress got shelved :)
