Simplicity 3774

To get the right silhouette for the Dummy Did It Dress I morphed Simplicity 3774 bodice and out-of-print McCall's 4783 skirt.

The dress is completely interlined (yea for built in slips).

Click on pic if you want a closer view of the great pleat details on the bodice top.

Finished off with a vintage fabric belt.
fabric is Harajuku Peony Alexander Henry

The Dummy Did It Dress

So, I'm at the pool and the cutest little blond headed child sat beside me. He appeared to be about 2 years old and was a complete stranger. He looked up at me and with the cutest wide open smile said, " I missed you."
How could I resist. So I said, " I missed you too."

 And I do, I miss you. So without further ado, I give you my Dummy Did It Dress.
Inspired by Once Upon A Pie, and the brilliant wardrobe people behind Pushing Daisies.
note to self: take the hem up about two inches.
