Sewing by Proxy-revisited
Remember this post where I helped a grandmother make a chirstening gown? Well she was gracious enough to send me pictures of the gown ON the baby. Now the gown is gorgeous, but the gown on the baby is over the moon.
If you can tear your eyes away from this gorgeous child, notice the beautiful smocking, precious teeny tiny piping, great pintucks and lace frill around the neckline.
The fabric she used is my absolute favorite, silky voile. This gown by this picture has been washed a couple of times and yet the fabric keeps it filmy floaty appearance.
And just one more to leave you with a smile. She is going to be a little heart breaker once she is a teenager. Beautiful baby. Beautiful gown.
This grandmother considers herself a beginner, I would beg to differ, but if you take a project slowly, ask for help when needed, start with the best materials you can afford, you too can create a wonderful confection.
