|Simplicity 4927 with Collars|
My son is a Baptist Preacher. He moved to another
church this year . His children are attending a private/
christian school. They are required to wear uniforms.
Have you ever tried to buy a solid royal blue dress with
collars? And with girls who are tall for there ages, thus
requiring a longer length?
Well , Maw to the rescue !! I had this little a-line pattern,
it didn't have collars, but I just added some cute little
peter pan collars. It was "SO PLAIN", it is really hard
for me to sew 'PLAIN" for the grandkids? But
the school requires no added colors, names,etc. SO,
I did the next best thing, I added a strip of bias
tape [same royal blue fabric] to the front and made
a blue bow and added to the middle of the band. That
helped a little.
NOTE: The picture did not pick up the bow and band
very well. photo taken in my kitchen last night. We
have been having freezing rain/snow/ice and it is
cold /dark here. eeeK!!![ I added a close up
photo , not very good, sorry]
