|The dress I was copying|
From this pattern I used the sailor style collar.
I used the bodice of this one...since it crossed in front I was able to make modifications, This way it gave me the double breasted look I wanted!
I took the sleeves and skirt from this pattern...
As you see, a little creativity, some adjustments and details made this dress have the look I wanted! O and did I mention...Those buttons unbutton and the whole front of the dress opens up to make it easy to get on and off your little one!
