Denim Marie Antoinette Dress




Here is a dress from the past. I made this for Zaynab when she was 1 1/2 for Eid Adhah. She wore it only three times before hitting a growth spell. The material is leftover striped denim from a project I did for my hubby. I'm sorry about the darkness of the pictures. The white under-dress is cotton.


This is the front. The overdress has a detachable stomacher. 







The sleeves have a mock insert of ruffles. I drafted a complete pattern for the sleeves (thank goodness I know more about drafting sleeves now)

  6. This dress is so adorable! What a pity your daughter wasn't able to wear it more. Any chance you know another little girl who would be able to wear it?

    1. Thank you. I'm afraid that this dress is going into retirement. I rather make another dress like this than give away this old rag to another girl. I hope to be able to revise the pattern for future use.
