Matching Easter Dresses [Custom Order]

 This dress was designed from a vintage pattern (Simplicity, copyright 1974).



These bloomers are a new pattern but I added the ribbons on the legs.





Since the sisters these were made for are 6 and 2, their dress designs were best to be different, while utilizing the same fabric. Big Sister chose the dress design she wanted. It was originally meant to look like the Kit Kittredge (American Girl) journalist dress.







And for good measure: A dress for Big Sister's American Girl doll to match.

  3. Corset Dresses give us the impression of tightly squeezed waists and straps that knock the breath out of ladies. It was most likely the case with corset dresses back while in the Victorian times, Victorian ladies wore these for just one of a few purposes - health related reasons or to seem to have the desired hourglass shape of the times.
