Name of dress: Yellow Dress
by: Greta Gothard
Made for: Felicity Merriman
Made with: a block of yellow
quilting fabric, white lace, yellow ribbon, posterboard.
This dress was a Christmas present from Mrs. Merriman to Felicity
in December, 2006.
Felicity needed good work dresses without too much extra fabric or decorations to get in
the way of cooking, and this one works perfectly.
The bodice has a piece of stomacher-shaped posterboard sewn
in so it keeps a lady-like figure without all of the extra fabric and decorations that a stomacher would usually involve.
The beautiful square neckline is decorated with fine
lace and lends a certain elegance to a otherwise plain work dress.
A little touch of decoration can be seen on the sleeves,
where Mrs. Merriman added a bit of yellow ribbon.
