Paisley Lakelin by Children's Corner

Children's Corner Lakelin
A sweet, quick sew is Children's Corner Lakelin.  This is a size 8, made exactly as the pattern states.  (Except for the piping.)

It goes together easy.  Sews up nicely.  Wears beautifully.

The neckline of this pattern is constructed differently than I have done other round yokes.  The fabric and lining are sewn together at the neck and then basted onto the dress and then sewn down.  From taking my class from Susan Kahjle and learning that basting is about "control."  Instead of pinning and sewing, I hand basted and then stitched in the ditch of the piping.  The result was a perfect round yoke that lays beautifully.

This pattern goes into the "use again" pile!

  1. I love this yoke... and your model looks like she is enjoying herself! Love it!

  2. Wow, I love this pattern, and the fabric you chose is lovely!

  3. This is a lovely dress for an 8yr old girl. It's so hard to find things they will agree with.
