As promised, here is the most recent creation of the Little Orphan Annie costume. I am waiting for pictures from the customer of her granddaughter wearing it. Can't wait to see it on the real live little girl. :)
If you're curious, I used a 1970s pattern to recreate the dress. It is an A-line dress with no waist (more comfortable for little girls) with the addition of the white belt. This allows the little girl to wear the belt at the natural waistline or lower for a low-waisted look. Just add white bobby socks and black Mary-Janes and you've got the look!
