Vintage 50s Mccalls 9776 Girls PARTY Dress with petticoat sewing pattern Size 4

I know Easter is just around the corner, but couldn't you see you little girl in this darlin' dress. I love the big bow tie and the petticoat. So girly!
I don't ever remember wearing a dress like this, my mom dressed me in my sister's hand me downs, but once while going to my Aunt Ellen house for the weekend, who didn't have kids and was a school teacher, my older sister told me to leave our Sunday clothes at home and Aunt Ellen would buy us new clothes. Sure enough she did and I still have the dress she bought for me. I pulled in out of the cedar chest a year ago and my then 5 year old son insisted on trying it on and here is his picture with the dress on. This is going to come in so handy one day! (evil laugh)
