Hillary, by Children's Corner, has always been a favorite of mine!
I made this little version several years ago, using a floral print (no longer available) and a coordinating gingham.
I have fabrics pulled to make another Hillary, but still attempting to clean and organize my sewing room.
I may just have to admit defeat on the cleaning and organizing and start sewing!
The square neckline, and combination of pleats and gathers in the front, make this design a little different from most basic square yoke dresses.
I adore turn cord bows. The front of this little dress just seemed to beg for one.
After all, everything is better with a bow!
Sweet design touches continue on the back of the dress, with a v-shaped neckline and yoke overlap.
It is the perfect spot for a decorative Mother of Pearl button!
I also used the gingham for the skirt placket, just to add another small and special touch!
Sorry for the fuzzy pictures.
I think my camera is suggesting that I need to continue cleaning and save photography for another day!
Whether cleaning or stitching, may it be a good Monday for you!
