Some of you may remember this little darling from one of my previous posts. She has an aunt who loves her very much. This aunt has two half grown boys, so having a little niece is a treat for her. Anyway, she called and asked me to make the jumper that's in my last post and this Pocahontas dress. I'm going to deliver these tomorrow. She is one of my teacher friends at the school where I used to teach before I retired. They are having parent/teacher conferences tomorrow so it will be a good time to take them. Then, I am taking a few days off from sewing. I need a little break!
Here's the dress front and back. I stitched the beads on one at a time by hand to a piece of ribbon. I then sewed it on to the top of the fringe that I made from the darker of the two pieces of fake suede fabric that I purchased for this.
Following are some close ups of the details. First shows the little purse that I made and attached to a strip of leather used as a tie belt.
Here's the zigzagged hemline with the beads that I sewed on one at a time like the top.
Then here is a close up of the top.
