The Parson's Daughter Dress

I imagine this is what the parson's daughter would have worn back in the day.
I love the yoke detail.  And the linen.
 

I used this vintage Simplicity pattern:

Cynthia is this a vintage pattern? If so I think I have this very same pattern coming to me!!

Oh what is this pattern? The dress is adorable, great job.

So sweet! I don't think the Parson's daughter would have a ruffle on her dress, though. It might be too much adornment and cause jealousy or impure thoughts :)
