Best bib and tucker

ebay item 8305987417
Here's another pattern I look at every couple of of months, idly think about making, and set aside. The bib dress has been sadly absent lately, but I don't think I'm the one to bring it back, unfortunately. And the curves on this bib seem very unfriendly to sew.

However, I keep looking at this pattern because there's something about the Peter Pan collar that I find immensely charming. I am perhaps the only person that feels this way, or perhaps the only person not involved in parochial education that feels this way, as I don't find many Peter Pan collars making their way to the stores. (Although the school uniform website, French Toast, has Peter Pan blouses up to a 46 bust!)

The sad result of there not being many Peter Pan collared dresses to buy in the store is that I automatically buy whatever I find. I swear, I would buy a fluorescent orange pleather catsuit if it had a Peter Pan collar.

  1. I too love Peter Pan collars. (My mom can’t figure it out.) I also like “bertha” collars. Anything rounded.
