One of the memorable events in Little House in the Big Woods is when Pa brought back new calico fabric for the girls to have new dresses and then later in the book they wore their new dresses.
When Pa returned from a trip to town, he brought the girls new fabric for Ma to sew them each a dress. Laura’s dress was “dark red with little golden-brown dots” (Chapter 6, Little House in the Big Woods).
Read the description of the fabric for Laura’s dress and how Laura described her dress once Ma sewed it for her. Use this dress design worksheet to draw and color how you think her dress looked.
