a beautiful crown
on the Queen
and her velvet robes
swam merrily in the

My sweet silly Issa likes her new dress that I began making in Nashville at The Children's Corner Sewing School. Children's Corner has recently been purchased by 2 younger women, and they are working hard to keep the quality of instruction, products and design that have made the company famous among sewing mothers and grandmothers.
This pattern is Children's Corner Katherine; it was taught by Lezette Thomason. who shared lots of tips and stories with us along the way. No french seams on this dress, I zipped up the side seams and sleeves with a long serger seam and was done. The hem is stitched down by machine and has a tailored look.
I love the simple sleeve on this dress. It is long, set in, and finished with a tiny bias band at the cuff. It has a tiny bit of gathering at the top of the sleeve and cuff. The dress bodice is accented with a matching tiny gingham, and a bias neckline. It has 3 buttons on the back.
I have a feeling that Katherine in this soft aqua corduroy is going to be a favorite.
