Enjoy every moment of summertime fun: hopscotch, lemonade stands and evening concerts in the park. Throw this little frock over a swimsuit and your little one is ready for dinner with Grandma on the terrace. Our Galena Dress uses colorful strips of bias tape to frame the center front keyhole opening on the front bodice and the matching peek-a-boo sleeves. The coordinating tie closure at the front neck finishes off the criss-cross bodice.
For the main and contrasting bias fabrics of the Galena Dress, we recommend light-to-medium weight woven fabrics, such as quilting cotton, cotton poplin, sateen, and linen.
