Little Lovelies: Vintage Girl's Dresses

I had a birthday sneak up on me and finally got a chance to use this McCall Pattern I've been drooling over for awhile.

Little girl dresses don't take much time and this was no exception. Even with the fabulous yoke details I was able to finish it well in a day...
You can see more of the dress and the wearer's delight over on my personal blog, along with
the construction details and my discover on sizing.
This put me on the hunt for other little girl's dress that had fun details like yokes, collars and interesting seaming. I put together a cute treasury of all my finds.
Full treasury seen here.
Do you like to sew little girl's dresses? I find it's easier because the pieces are so much smaller and fitting isn't as big of an issue as it is for a full grown woman.

  1. Em, it's beautiful! I love sewing vintage dress patterns, they seem so much nicer than modern ones. I've made a few for my granddaughter, and hope to make more for the coming summer.(if it ever gets here!) I'm off to read your blog post!

  4. I made almost all my daughter's clothes when she was a toddler. Mostly from vintage patterns which I have saved hoping to one day have a grand daughter to sew for!
