"D" is for Dress #3

Sew: sunny Spring dress

Girl #2 happily modeled this tank style dress:

Complete with red gingham trim and covered buttons up the back:

And added the red gingham bias trim as an accent:

Here's how I made the dress:

1. Using Simplicity pattern #5226, top C extended to dress length, cut out pieces:

Construct dress as per instructions, center back top portion was modified for buttons.

2. Make fabric covered buttons with Wrights kit:

3. Make buttonholes and lay out buttons:

4. Stitch in place:

Ready to wear:
