I used a couple of Liberty covered buttons and elastic loops to fasten the back of this dress because I'm all about easy dressing with my little peeps. Hand-worked or fabric loops would have looked lovely instead of the elastic though.
This is a self-drafted pattern, and it has a cute little front bow just like my last little yellow dress. I think the bow works beautifully with the style. I chose a medium/heavy weight cotton for my version because I wanted structure and body in the dress, but the style would work just as well in a lighter cotton or voile.
Like all new patterns, this one still has a bit of work to go, but it's already getting a big tick of approval from Miss Five.
