Sarah’s Baptism dress 2002


 Here’s my firstborn fairy child, Sarah.  Her baptism day was on her 8th birthday.  I love how this dress turned out!  I knew that I wanted to use Swiss eyelet instead of lace that the original pattern called for.  Unfortunately, the eyelet I had wasn’t wide enough so I had to sew two layers together (talk about time consuming!)  Sarah’s favorite color was (and still is) blue, so I used blue variegated floss for the hand embroidery on the bodice, and along the pointed hem of the dress. .

 

 

Dress features are… tucks on bodice back and front, underskirt lining, hand embroidery on bodice and hem, pointed over-hem
