>More Dress Progress

>I am making a size four dress; the slip that you see is for a size four child. So this way you can see how much more I have to do to get to modern standards of dress length. When I get to where the original pattern asked the crocheter to stop, I will post a photo. There will probably still be about 7 to 10 inches of slip showing. Dresses had been worn much shorter in the 1940’s. It was considered cute to see a little girl’s bloomers. The way people wear clothes on children these days, it would be considered a long shirt that you wear with leggings. Fun how time changes some things. Click on photo if you want a bigger image.

    >My baby daughter is tall for her age, but thin; so she fits into dresses width-wise for much longer, but then length-wise, they end up short on her. By the time she wears most of her dresses well, you always see the bloomers. I love it. Makes me think of Shirley Temple and her little shorty dresses!
