Summer Sewing Challenge - Express Yourself in Linen

Village Frock

I love this garment for my little one because everything is made out of the linen–including the sleeve & neck bindings, the button loops, and the buttons.  With so much detail in the design from the gathering to the side row of buttons, I like the monochromatic scheme.  A village frock for my little village girl.

    Reminds me of the Ashland, OR's Shakespeare Festival outfits. Ashland is known the world over for the festival each summer.

    I love the color of the fabric. You could go anywhere with is classic design and has held the test of time; dates to circa. 1564 to 1623 or so. Thank you bring it back into style.

    She is really beautiful......and so is the dress. I love the colour and the details, even to the hair elastics.

    This is really adorable -- and so is your little redhead girl.

    Anyone know of an adult sized pattern like this? I would love a jacket with the same details!

    RoseV, Simplicity 3627, though not exact, has a similar style in a jacket. Pleating the ends of the sleeves as well would give it even more of a similar feel to this dress, and you could do covered buttons as well as increase the number of buttons. Simplicity 2760 would also be cute.

    Sewapropos, Thanks for finding/suggesting Simplicity 2760 as an adult version of this! Super cute. I am going to make view A.

    Cute model! I would love one in my size. Very professionally done!

    I love the colour and the design on the neck but what are those sleeves all about ! Personally I feel they ruin an otherwise beautiful look on a very pretty young girl.

    This is so beautiful - you have done a great job. I have tried to buy this pattern with no luck. If you have finished with it and no longer want to hold on to it, I would love to purchase it from you. I live in Australia and there is nothing like this here. I love to sew and this would look gorgeous on my little girl.
