Rebekah’s baptism dress and matching purse

tucks on front and back, split sleeves overlap and fasten with snaps. lining ruffle extends below pointed hemlime.  lots of hand embroidered flowers on bodice and center front hem.

See how the void in the embroidery forms a heart?

Purse with “R” for Rebekah.

I had the opportunity to make this heirloom baptism dress for Rebekah, the grandaughter of a teacher at the girls’ school and a very dear friend.  Since Rebekah  lives in another state, the dress (size 10) had to be mailed the week before the big day to make sure it fit.  Well, here’s the results.
