Exchange Dress

This is the "Trisha's Treasures Exchange Dress" that was the previous featured on the previous post. I found this picture that I took at the fall market. It is a redrafting pattern that you use with the "Children's Corner Lucy." It's a wonderful year-round dress!

We have something new and excited just around the corner at The Smock Shoppe! Be sure to check your email, the blog, and Facebook frequently in the next week!
