"Grandma's hankies" dress

Here is the dress I just finished for Chili. The fabric was called "Grandma's hankies." I love the dainty vintage look of it. It took me about 3 days to do. I'm sure an expert sewer could have whipped it out, but an expert sewer I am not. I made quite a few mistakes, and learned how to do a few new things (pleats, how to make a slip/liner, and how to attach all of it), but with the help of my ever-so-skilled sister-in-law, it is finally done. I absolutely love how it turned out.
Cute as a bug.

  1. Love it! SO stinkin' cute. I need sewing lessons, J!

  2. Yeah J! It looks fabulous on her! Haven't gotten to the jeans yet, but this week I will. Will be in your neck of the woods for pics on Friday if you want to meet up. Call me.
