Valentine's Classic
Photography by Marcy Black Simpson and Mac Jamieson

This classic dress makes any occasion a happy one, especially when your precious girl wears it. Using traditional heirloom sewing techniques, Kathy Dykstra has created a stunning dress with shadow appliqué hem, yoke and bow motifs. Shadow Appliqué technique is secured with twin needle stitching along the scallops. You can add a touch of color using a single needle with colored thread to match the appliqué fabric and a double or triple needle straight stitch. Fully illustrated instructions, templates and pattern in sizes 2-10 are available on our Holiday 2017 Issue Downloads page under “Bows & Scallops.” For those who choose to stitch by hand, bow templates are included in the download.
