Christmas dress, 1985 (Susan) and 2011(LJ) by Speattle
This is the dress I sewed for my daughter in 1985 when she was one. Then her daughter wore it in 2011 when she was one! It looks beautiful on them both.
I used a washable cotton velveteen. It washes and tumble dries perfectly and does not even need pressing. It is lined with the green fabric that I used to make my son's Christmas bow tie in 1985.
I wish I could link the pattern, but I seem to have either lost or misplaced a lot of my little girl patterns from the 1980s. When I find them again, I'll update.
