Yipee! Gosh golly gee this has been a long time coming! Three years ago I received a custom order for a Rockford Peach Costume and created a darling version with the original asymmetrical button placket, and authentic patches, but also a full twirly circle skirt, gently puffed sleeves, and simple to make D ring belt. Now you can buy a Rockford Peach Costume pattern so all you crafty mamas to make your own just like it! The PDF pattern is available HERE in my SHOP as an instant download, just in time for Halloween this year!
The vintage baseball costume is really fun, and I love the lines of the dress. Mrs. Wrigley and her design team of 1943 deserve kudos for style. Made with a different color fabric or a fun print it would be transformed from costume into a fun dress for any time. In addition, with the Little League Dress Pattern I include Option B as a way to create a really timeless and fun button-up play dress. In this option the button placket is centered, highlighting the unique angled neckline which can be made with or without the collar. I mean, come on. Does it get any better than a twirly skirt? This dress is easy fitting and perfect for frolicking, skipping, and twirling. Click through for more information about the pattern, and to start working on one of your own Little League Dresses! (Huge thank you to my darling little models! It’s sure fun to have friends with really cute kids!)
