Pink Saturday {Katherine’s Blessing Gown and Bonnet}

My sister Hanne sent me a couple pictures of what she had in mind for the dress and bonnet.  this shows how I put these ideas on a board above my sewing machine so I can create the closest thing to what my customers (or…  my family) want me to make for them.  I was stressed for time when making this one.  I also was having a gallbladder attack at the same time, otherwise I would’ve been able to get it done before my deadline.

As it turned out, my other sister (Beth) had to embroider the floral designs on the skirt, and sew the buttonholes for me.  I’m so grateful that she was able to finish it up for me!  Even though, it didn’t make me feel any better about not getting it completely done before my family picked the dress up on their way to travel 5 hours to Hanne’s house.

Here’s the hem of the dress.  At least I got the tucks done!

 

*notice that my beautiful niece is laying on a pink heirloom blanket I made when her sister was a baby!

Hanne gave me the biggest compliment… she said that the dress is exactly what she was imagining!

 

I hand smocked and hand embroidered the dress bodice.  The bonnet is hand embroidered, has a self ruffle, and is completely lined.

would you have guessed that I used an Egyption cotton sheet ???

 

thank you to our wonderful host Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound  for another Pink Saturday!
