Eyelet Dress

Another gem from Rebecca!  This black cotton eyelet dress currently on display at Treadle is just the thing for spring!

We all admired Rebecca's clever use of the eyelet fabric's decorative scalloped selvage as trim.  She simply trimmed off the selvage, then applied it as you would any flat ribbon or lace; she used this treatment on both hem and armholes.  The neckline is finished with black petersham ribbon with neatly mitered corners.

 Rebecca used McCall's pattern 6554 for this dress.  Both the pattern and fabric are currently available at Treadle!
