A Game of Tennis
by Leopold Kawalski, German, 1856-1932
This is from my daisy dress, made from cotton fabric, and this particular print comes in two other background colors, one being pink, and the other white.
The trim, above, is sold by the roll, and matches the pretty daisies with the pink centers. One roll covered the neckline and the sleeve hems.
Trim must be sewn on with a relaxed stitch and must not be stretched too tightly, or it will not lie flat.
Here is an easy hair attachment: fold a long length of matching fabric, press it and stitch.
Loop the fabric strip through the hair clip.
Tie it once and leave it to hang naturally, or form it into a bow, below. It is easier than a scrunchie, and does not pull out a lot of hair when you remove it.
The dress is Simplicity 5189 which you can buy when patterns go on sale for $1.99 or 99c, whichever comes first. I used sleeves from the previous blouse, which were from an an older pattern. This pattern has a good neckline that is not too low, and it requires no zipper, however I would suggest you add one to make it a little easier to wear.
This pattern is easy to sew, if you are familiar with sewing the ease area around the upper bodice. Follow the pattern directions and it should be possible to do it without a lot of problems.
