Good Golly!

Is this the Miss Molly?

It's been a while since I've done any pattern re-drafting, but this one turned out so cute, I just had to share! It's the Miss Molly that I've made a few times before. This particular dress is my gift to my niece for her 2nd birthday gift. I wasn't going to post it, but I showed the dress to a friend this morning and she had a fit over it... so yes, I've ruined any surprise factor for when I actually deliver the gift this weekend, but hey, it DID get me a new sewing post, right?


Here's a close-up shot of the re-draft... Instead of gathers, I put in a pleat. Not hard, but this small little change really makes the dress look a bit more "dressy". And the close-up lets you see this fabulous linen... I'll be so sad when I run out of this fabric... it's just sooo pretty.

Sweet dress - the printed linen is gorgeous.
