Ruthie-inspired Feed Sack Dress

Ruthie dress 6

I give full credit for the inspiration for this dress to the American Girl doll Ruthie.  I made my own girl-sized version of her dress.  Even though this is supposed to be a 1930’s style dress and is made out of out of reproduction feed sack print.  I think it looks very stylish on my modern girl.  Back in the ’30’s, girls were their dresses much shorter, but I prefer my daughters to wear dresses that at least touch the knee, so I added a few extra inches to the bottom.  This is a size 7/8, but with luck, she’ll be able to wear it for a couple of years.
