Back to the Fifties, Round Two

In my quest to make a full skirted 1950s dress
I found this vintage pattern on Etsy.
The skirt is a little limp without a crinoline, but it was 100 degrees hot so I didn't dare ask Little V to wear one.
I incorporated some of my rummage sale trim.
And she was the only kiddo wearing this dress at the zoo that day.
Hmmm, my collar came out more gigantical than the one in the picture.  Ah, the joy of handmade :)
