Welcome to the next stop on the Peekaboo Pattern Shop Summer Tour!
I'm very pleased to show you the Jackie dress: a lovely, little vintage-inspired piece that is simply divine.  And just for today, the pattern is only $5, plus you have the opportunity to win 3 patterns of your choice!  



Anja is wearing a size 18 months, and it fits a little big (she's slightly small for her age at 21 months).

I chose a very light peach linen fabric, accented by black & white polka-dotted cotton.  The tutorial for the piping is here.  I chose to only add the piping down the front, although the pattern does explain how to add it to the collar as well.  

I really liked the exposed zipper feature in the back that gives a pop of colour contrast.  This was a new technique for me, and I found the pattern explained it very well.
