She was mesmerized.
For the special occasion, H. wore an Oliver + S School Photo Dress (view B) sewn using a print from Lecien’s Scandinavian Christmas. I made this dress to be a shop sample for JP Knit and Stitch, but H. was able to test if out before it went to its new home.
H. took full advantage of the hidden kangaroo pocket by slipping her program inside, so she could hold on to her Nana’s and Grandma’s hands as we made our way to our seats. Aside from the front pocket, my favorite detail of the dress is the ruffled collar.
For the lining, I used Bemberg lining in dark gray since I had some in my stash. I did a blind stitch to attach the lining to the zipper to give it a neater finisher; a step I didn’t bother to do the last time I made this dress.
