Originally when they sold this dress they just didn't do it any justice. The images really didn't show the details of the simple dress.
The fabric is thick and lovely with a great plaid of greens and plums.
The sleeve hemming is a really pleasant scallop finish. Here you can also see the fringe on the simple quilted shawl.
The front of the dress is also filled with some of those simple details that pioneers would have loved. There is a scallop at the front waist-line. It is attached to two fabric triangular pieces that go up to the shoulder. The inset has additional gathering and pin tucking.
Finish off Kirsten's look by adding two plum woven ribbons for her hair loops! I love it!
