A friend of mine has had a little baby girl. This was the perfect opportunity to make a little Adelaide sundress in size 1. I added some extra length to suit an 18 month old, as that will be her age come summer next year.
I've been playing around with the neckline and finishing the collar with hand stitching on the inside, leaving the collar without top stitching. This was not possible for commercial production, but is definitely so for home seamstresses. I think I prefer this finish. It's softer.
So this means adding a little extra detail to the pattern instructions, to give seamstresses the option of either method of finishing.
Adelaide was eyeing off this dress and fortunately I have another metre or so of it. Perhaps I should try this pattern as a top.
