I am so excited with this dress and how it turned out. I love it! It has machine embroidery, machine stitched daisy chain, trim in an alternate color and no button holes. All that is left is the hand work and a zipper. I must have a short, white zipper in my stash.
My plan for the day was a cute, sheer dress. Not too pink. Not too purple. (It was fairly pink and purple) It was cut out from a simple heirloom type layette pattern. But it would not assemble!!! I tried several times to do pin tucks to no avail. All attempts were too crooked to pass my quality control inspection. So I folded the main dress pieces and the excess fabric and put it away for use on something else, some other time.
The dotted fabrics were left over from a dress I made for Josie. Her dress was a combination of blue with white dots and white with blue dots for trim. It was for her birthday last summer. The embroidery pattern is the one I have used on Josie's birthday dresses since before she was born.
