What can you do with Lee?
Lee with Ruffle Collar
Inspired by royal and European fashion, we fell in love with this soft ruffle at the neck of our yoke dress, Lee. We attach the ruffle in such a way that it lays flat perfectly framing her sweet face. Choose between two options, a folded ruffle or a hemmed ruffle. Shop the look, here.
When you think of classic sewing for children, an Heirloom dress always comes to mind. This project is ideal for your first Heirloom dress, especially if you are becoming more confident with these techniques. Susan creates a bodice with lace, Swiss insertion, and pintucks. Tiny featherstitching is also a part of the bodice, and Melissa teaches this hand embroidery technique. The puff sleeve is finished with lace beading and lace edging perfect for displaying a delicate silk ribbon. In addition to showing you how to make the dress, Susan walks you through the steps to redraft the Lee pattern for a slip to accompany this Heirloom dress.
