Dressing the Little Ladies

After taking a quick look at Mrs. Clark's website, I am very pleased to say that even the tiny ladies are able to use the basic girls' dress pattern that we have. I think the size 1 will fit Anny and Emma, with little or no tweaking. The skirt length for babies once they start walking is about mid-calf. And for a baby in arms the dress would be full length.

If anyone has any questions just let me know and I shall answer them as best as I can. :)

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas!
In Christ and Mary,

And welcome to A Civil Seamstress!

Hopefully sometime in the near future I shall be able to share photos and videos of Civil War era clothing construction.

Until then...
God bless!
In Christ and Mary,
