"Mama Bear"

Fabric:  Lightweight sheer printed organdy, with a pattern similar to Easter eggs.  Yellow satin lining.


Classic UniKaren Designs "rufflebutt" dress.

Full circle skirt is made from sheer organdy, with attached bottom tier trimmed in white flat lace. The upper layer of ruffle goes all the way around and sweeps up to center back. Between these two sweeps are yards and yards more ruffles.

The bodice is holds its shape well with a yellow satin lining that faces the body, so it's nice and silky smooth against the skin.  A large Mama Bear looks lovingly at her baby bear who is holding a bouquet of flowers for her behind his back.  This large applique is stitched to yellow satin and is trimmed with layers and layers of ruffles. The larger white lace ruffle is hand pleated.  Top layer of ruffle is a double ruffled satin over nylon lace.

Ruffles jut out from the heart shaped bib, and go down to the center back, where side sashes come together to create a lovely perky bow to finish off the back.

Peter Pan collar is made of yellow satin, with white bias trim at the neckline.  A tiny white bow at center front gives a dainty finish.

Sleeves hold their own due to the nature of the fabric, with elastic for upper arm comfort, and white wide flat lace to finish them off. Sleeves are longer than I usually make, to help cover upper arm area. Yellow bows embellish the sides of the sleeves.

You can always wear a dress
that is too large,
but you cannot wear one 
that is too small.  
Check measurements, please!

Here you can see the shadow
of my hand under the fabric. 
Changing the petticoat to pink
or lavender will change the
overall appearance of this dress.
