Madeline"s Dress by kwinkler
Children's corner "louise" modified
This is a dress for my great niece Madeline. She will be 6 this month. I was inspired by a dress I saw in the Sew Beautiful April/May 2014 issue. The bodice is created by using a pleated block with Swiss beading and silk ribbons. The beading goes around the waist line to the back with bows idd on the sides.
The sleeves have a single pleat down the center. I used the Children's corner Louis pattern as my pattern changing the sleeves, bodice and neckline.
