Emma's Box Hill Dress ~ Historical Costume Inspiration Festival, Post 2

 Aagh!  I've been forgetting to do my posts for the Historical Costume Inspiration Festival!  Here is today's:
Emma's Box Hill Dress.

I love this dress of Emma's!  It's so cute and I love the trim on it!

 Here's an up-close on the bodice trim:

 Sometime back, I made this dress in doll-size.  It sold on Etsy within a day of me posting it!  My only regret is that I didn't get better pictures before it sold.  They're all pretty dark.  Still, here's the basic idea.
I used the pattern for Josefina's Christmas Dress, but added maybe an inch or two across the bodice so that it would gather at the top.
 Lace, brown bias, and yellow thread instead of the additional yellow bias on the actual dress of Emma's.
I think I need to make one like this again and get better pictures. ;-)  I would also like to make one for myself. ;-)
