Kyra’s Beautiful Girl’s 1780s Dress

By Jennie Chancey

My daughter, Kyra, absolutely loves this dress.

The sash is not as wide as the pattern calls for, since I only had a minimal amount of the blue, but it went perfect with the blue flower fabric. I also had to put in an elastic “drawstring” since it was slipping off her shoulders too much for her. Kyra has already requested more. LOL!

Krista, this dress has a perfect fit! The neckline sits exactly as it should (wide and right at the shoulder edge), and you did exactly right to add the elastic to keep it snug. Beautiful, beautiful work. No wonder your daughter wants more!

Share the love!
