Today at church I spotted this dress on a sweet little girl I know. She and her mother gave me permission to photograph it. Wouldn't it be fun to try to include it in something? The bodice has a shirred insert using the main fabric which is an adorable print in, and of itself! The belt is constructed of one-inch bias tubes that have been woven together. I think. The two fabrics must be a kind of polished cotton.
It is quite airy around the middle (open basket weave without lining), making it a perfect little dress for Atlanta heat. The belt becomes a sash in the back, completing this charming look for a young lady. And I always love a little piping.
