I had a formal like this in 1966, and I loved it. I just had to make this pattern. It was easy and fun and the result was elegant.
This was a wonderful pattern. So easy, yet it made a darling dress. It is a good way to use some of your stored lace and make a little girl and her doll happy. I am sure I will use it many more times.
