A Dress For Kaelen

A Dress For Kaelen

This outfit was made for our trip to Barkerville, an 1800's historic town. Kaelen insisted that she couldn't go unless she was dressed appropriately, so thanks to tons of help from my mom this outfit was put together so she could visit in style. I don't know how historically accurate this dress is for the time period we were visiting, but it did the trick, she was thrilled. It's Simplicity pattern 3725, and I have to give about 67% of the sewing credit to my mom. I did a little, but whenever I became frustrated she stepped in and walked me through things or else did it for me. I think this will be one of the best memories of my trip, making this with my mom, and then giving it to my daughter.
