By Thimbles and Acorns
Get in touch with your inner Laura as you sew up this charming 1870s prairie inspired dress, apron and bonnet ensemble. The dress features a gathered bodice with a yoke and waistband that button down the back. Finish the skirt with the wide ruffle for an old-fashioned prairie style, or leave the ruffle off and don an easy to make cloth flower for your modern prairie girl. The bonnet cinches in the back with a drawstring to achieve a perfect fit and the simple apron ties in the back and has two handy pockets, just the thing for a hard working Prairie girl. This easy to make pattern is a great choice for new sewists wanting to develop their sewing skills.
