This is the traditional dress for Aragon girls who dance its traditional dance: la jota. My two nieces are now five year old and they are training themselves to dance the jota, so we decided to make them the complete outfit. Since we have their birthday as the deadline and it is next week, we have to hurry hurry and their mom has distributed the work: granny is making the skirts and underskrits, I am making the overalls, the knee-breeches they wear under their underskirts and the bodice.
I copied a borrowed model, which with the overall was simple enough. With the knee-breeches, I followed the rub-off method I've learnt from this book.
As for the bodice, I also have a model I plan to rub-off, but I prefer to fit it on them before I start cutting the fabric, because this is a pretty tight piece and it has to be well fit. As soon as I have them made, I will publish them too. And I hope to publish a picture with my awsome models wearing the complete outfit.
Notice the pintucks all over the aprons and breeches. They are meant to be undone progresively as the kids grow up.
