The Madeline Dress Meets Old Doily

Here is The Madeline Dress, yet again, in a size 7 using nothing fancy blue floral... ...with what seems to be my favourite red spot for the waistband and a gorgeous old doily for the apron! I didn't cut this doily at all when making the dress. It is just slipped under the waistband, so when little Miss outgrows it, I should be able to unpick and retrieve the doily intact. I am not too sure what the person who made it would say, seeing all those hours of work tacked onto a dress that will no doubt be well worn and loved! But then again, I wasn't the one who dumped it in the Op shop...at least it is getting a second chance at life!...and here is the really cute but tired little girl modelling it... thankyou my gorgeous girl!
