This is my favorite time of year! Birds are singing and flying around busily with twigs and bits of fluff for their nests and every little flower pushing its way up out of the dirt makes me smile. Every time I go for a walk I keep taking deep breaths to smell the beautiful blossoms on all the bushes and trees.
This week’s dress celebrates daffodil time! It’s such a simple pattern, it seems to cry out for lace and embroidery and trim, but in this case I stuck with the simplicity of a daffodil – just some petals and a ruffle.
This is the final pattern of our 1950s series for 14″ dolls, have you been keeping up? Posting pix? If you haven’t, how about this for an incentive: I’ve been working on some REALLY cute 1950s dresses for AG size that feature embroidery and other special touches and you can enter to win the new collection of patterns! Here’s a sneak peek:
