This little pattern is from one of the time frames that I love: the ‘40’s and 50’s. I love it when little girls look like little girls. In my family, we always named things; so, if I had had a dress like this, I would have called it the one ‘with buttons on the side’, thus the name. Things were simpler then and when life gets hectic, a trip down memory lane is one way to make it seem better. Oh, yeah, I love my little pigeon-toed girl, my baby sister walked like that when she was little. Warm memories.
There are three skirts, sleeves, collars, belts and two bodices. You can do them the way shown, or you can mix it up and create many different looks.
This pattern may not be for the beginner as there are no illustrations only well-written directions. There are the usual pattern pieces. If you have the assistance of an experienced seamstress, you will likely be successful.
