A Pineapple Dress for a Girl

Regular price $5.50 $0.00
PieceWork magazine reader Jean Reitz sent us a photograph of her that was taken on July 4, 1946, and she’s wearing a Pineapple pattern dress. She told us this was her favorite dress—ever; it was made for her by Margaret G., her aunt. Jean hoped we would be able to include a pattern for a little girl’s Pineapple dress in a future issue. At last, we’re happy to do just that, and placing it in Vintage Crochet is just perfect. We asked Tammy Hildebrand to design the dress based on that snapshot.
