A Bishop Dress
As my daughter got older, I did make the bishops in the ankle length style. And when I made this dress as a baby gift, I would usually make it in the daygown length of 21".
But now having two little granddaughters, who are 17 and 20 months and have been walking for some time , I see how the ankle length really gets in their way for mobility. It is a lot of dress for a toddler on the go, except for a special occasion. If I could manage it, I would have them both in a smocked bishop every single day!!!
So, I am going to try making one taking out some of the fullness and making it the shorter length. I have to admit, I just love seeing those chubby little legs showing and worn with socks and mary janes.
