Vintage Lace Doll Dress

I made this doll dress from a vintage reproduction pattern from Butterick. The lace was a garage sale find. While this dress came out very cute, it is quite possibly the strangest construction I have ever seen. The dress itself is one very oddly shaped piece, with pleats, gathers and a placket in the back. The only additional pieces are a placket facing and the ties. I had to make a few modifications as there was supposed to be two more pleats on the front with lace, but as you can see, that would have been overkill. For the closure I used Velcro for ease of use, since it is being made for my three-year-old.
