Felicity’s Dress


I made this elegant baptism dress for my youngest daughter when she turned 8.  I wanted the dress to have the look and feel of being smocked but just didn’t have time to do any actual smocking.  Instead, I sewed cotton lace insertion together to make the bodice.  I then hand embroidered a pretty design onto the dress yoke.  Felicity wanted it to have bows and flowers.  The entire bodice is lined for extra support of the lace.   I used an ivory color of lace and embroidery floss so it would really stand out.

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
