Sara’s Stunning Seafoam Dress


My cousin Heidi commissioned me to make one of these dresses for her little girl in a size 6-12 months.  The only requirements Heidi gave me was to use the seafoam colored batiste fabric because it would look so pretty with Sara’s eyes, and to hand embroider some pink flowers on it.  This is what I came up with.

Slip has machine stiched scallops on neck and armholes, hand embroidery on center bodice, buttons on shoulders, and white baby French lace on hem.

The embroidery design is from a vintage baby layette pattern I have.

* This dress is an example of what I can make.  If you are interested in having me custom make one for you, or looking for something specific, please contact me missy@fairychildheirlooms.com or 480-216-4737

    I am so excited Missy! I hung up Sara’s dress in my closet last night (that’s where I hang up all of her nicest dresses) and when I went in this morning to grab a shirt, there was this beautiful dress!!! I can’t wait to put her in it on Sunday for church, she is going to be absolutely adorable in it. Thank you, it is exactly what I hoped it would be!

    Hi Missy,

    I am so glad to meet another heirloom sew-er. I dabble in heirloom sewing whenever my time allows.

    I meant to ask you if you had done the shell hem by hand, or by machine. I have been dying to try doing a shell hem on one of the unfinished slips…

  4. Hi Missy,
    Your work is absolutely beautiful.

    I was just looking at your recent post, and saw the dress on your niece, but I had to comment again when I looked down here and saw it so up close! Once again it is just darling. I love the embroidering down at the bottom, and the lace lining. I thought the pink lace was simply a slip when you mentioned it had a slip to go with it, but now I see its part of the dress! It gives the dress a feminine little perk at the end. You know, the seafoam material would look great as a sailor’s little suit as well!
