Michelle contacted me about a birthday gift for her youngest daughter. She had seen the 5 piece pioneer outfit I had listed and wanted one like it.
I received a couple of emails from Michelle and as we were working out the details she developed computer troubles. . .It took a few weeks before we connected again and by that time her daughter’s birthday was over and her present would be late. So I got to work as quickly as I could.
The fabric she selected was a pretty blue floral. I finished the dress and put a few growth tucks in the bottom.
This outfit also includes bloomers with growth tucks.
I really like the sweet little chemise for under the dress.
The ribbon around the neckline makes it adjustable.
The dress is topped with a half apron.
The bonnet with this outfit has an adjustable ribbon at the back. To make this I had to make 2 buttonholes that the drawstring ribbon will be fed through.
Then I insert a casing using bias tape and feed the ribbon through the buttonholes.
These bows will be tied in a bow at the back of the bonnet.
The bonnet has a large brim, a modesty flap at the neck, and ties under the chin.
The dress and bonnet make a sweet outfit.
But when you put all 5 pieces together you get an absolutely adorable pioneer outfit.
Well, Michelle, it took a long time to get this birthday present ordered and created but I think she will be very happy with her gift.
