Dress for Allegra, McCalls 9223

Tristan's baby sister. Somewhat :) vintage McCalls pattern #9223, modified. Their pattern had a collar, I modified it to a yoke overlay to take advantage of the fabric's scalloped edge. I also eliminated the side seams and added a center back seam. I made a plain little slip to go under it... just a tank style undershirt with a piece of broadcloth (no poly cotton batiste in stash and Mom doesn't own an iron!!!) serged to it; shell tuck edge on slip. Fabric is poly cotton sort of dotted Swiss. Dots are embroidered, not flocked. They were a bit of a challenge to sew. I had good success with the walking foot with Stitch and Ditch underneath; otherwise the dots got caught up in the feed dogs. Size 2.
