This dress was made using fabric from Wal-mart. the Pattern is Childrens Corner Madeline. It was a fun and easy dress to sew. The trim on the dress is red pindots also used to make the covered buttons. I think the dress is a little short, but works well with a pair of tights. For summer I will make a pair of bloomers to wear under the dress.
