vintage style baby dress


 I used a vintage baby pattern for this heirloom dress and just added embroidery to the bodice for a fancier look.  I loved it so much that I made one for my friends down the street, and a longer one made of silk dupioni into a blessing dress.

Felicity wore this all the time as a baby ,  It’s the dress she wore when I brought her home from the hospital..and it fit her as a fancy top when she was a toddler.  (My kids are skinny, so a chubby baby wouldn’t be able to wear it that long)   I had a hard time putting this one away!
