Little Girl's Vintage Christmas Dress

I wanted to make V a dress for the holiday party season, but I wasn't aiming for the traditional red and green scheme.

I used McCalls pattern 9590 from 1968.

The fabric is Sherbet Pips by Moda.   It's a sweet bunch of girls on swings.

Miraculously, I installed a zipper.

We tested it out at a holiday party last weekend with a pair of bloomers and pink tights.

 V didn't stay clean/unwrinkled for long. 

Which is exactly how a three year old should look post-party I suppose.
