Sweet Sue

This darling dress was slated to grace the pages of the much loved magazine, Creative Needle.
Unfortunately, the magazine ceased publication prior to the article being printed.
Trudy Horne is now graciously sharing this sweet adaptation of her pattern, Mary Jane Jumpers and Blouses, through her website.

Truly a charming dress, you did a superb job.

Delightful eye-catching handstitch detail on the front sure accents the dress.

I loved CN, so sad, I sure miss the publication.

Thank you, but Trudy made this one! I was just sharing her delightful design since it was never published in the magazine!

Thanks for posting this. Beautiful dress! It's such a shame CN is gone. It was full of great inspiration by such talented women. Okay....now I'm off to stroke my fabric and plan on making this!

Thanks for sharing, it is a beautiful dress. I too miss CN.
I have this pattern...unfortunately my "baby" does not want to wear this kind of dresses anymore....so sad.
I was planning on making her variation of the Hanna's sundress!

How precious! I just love the little pleats in the front & that sq. neckline is darling, too.

I'm going straight over to Trudy's site just as soon as I hit "submit". Thanks for the link. I didn't know she had a website.
