This sweet little dress is perfect for warm summer days to frolic through wildflowers and retire in the shade for a picnic with cute sandwiches and cool lemonade. Made from a light weight cotton in the colorway of a Robin Egg blue, it will keep you both cool and cute in the sunshine filled days. The fabric is decorated with tiny Bambi deer, prancing around underneath the bubbles floating through the sky occasionally stopping to chase a few butterflies or gossip with the birds while munching on some cherries.
This bodice features delicate princess seams at center front to create an elegant tailor and fit against the body, accented by decorative top stitching. A delicate daisy chemical lace peeks out from these seams, where a red satin ribbon weaves to and fro to create a corset like appearance lacing up the front. A red gingham collar drapes along the neckline for a vintage flair silhouette accented by large red satin ribbons. Halter neck straps were carefully turned and stitched at the neckline, swooping over the shoulders that can be tied into a large bow at the base of the neck.
In the back, four rows of elastic allowing for the ease and comfort of a shirred center back, while yards of ribbon weave to and fro tying neatly into a bow at the waist. The ribbon is carefully threaded through the scalloped edge trim to create the appearance of a corset like effect.
The skirt is gathered at the waist and is cut with more of an a-;ine shape showing off about 3 yards of fabric, and can fit up to 2 petticoats depending on their size and shape. Matching daisy chemical lace also peeks out from beneath the hemline.
This dress is fully lined. All seams have been finished with either a French seam or Hong Kong bias, with additional serged edges. An invisible side zipper allows for easy on or off. The generous hem was finished with a simple top stitch.
(Note: The chemical laces, particularly the scalloped edge, is delicate. Please be careful, and do not pull too tightly on the ribbon as this will cause the lace to fray or break. It is merely meant as delicate decoration, not for tightening the bodice. Dyed laces may not be perfectly even as I am doing them by hand.)
