>Part 13: Sweet baby dress with blue embroidery



This sweet little dress has such nice details and is in such good shape.  There is embroidery on the front and back as well as the neck and the hem.  The embroidery is soft blues and crisp white.

The trim is a French lace at the neck sleeves and hem.  I love the scallop detailing of the hem with the lace.

There is a simple technique of pin tucks used to gather in some of the excess fabric and make a fuller skirt plus it is just a nice detail to add to clothing.

This dress is made from a single piece of fabric that is cut on a fold.  I love the way people did that so simple to have a dress this sweet made from one pattern piece.  OK there is one other piece of fabric the button placket but that is just a long skinny rectangle so that isn’t that hard to do either.  I noticed the last two days that Anne of Green Gables has been on PBS  I just love the clothes in that show I want all of Anne’s blouses.

One detail that is missing is a pearl button closure it has a snap but it doesn’t bother me as I still love the dress.  Plus I hate making button holes too so I can not blame the person.
