White work

I had mentioned some time back that my oldest daughter was being taught white work by me for a project she was doing for school.  She did all the embroidery then I assembled the dress for her a mother and daughter effort.  I think she did a great job for her first time effort she even went as far to hand embroider each button hole.

The tatting is some antique that I had that we added to make the dress a little fancier.  She could have made the tatting herself ( as I taught her to tat in the last a few years) or I could have made some even fancier but since we already had white we just choose to use it instead.

    Oh my that is so very pretty. I began to learn to tat and then stopped. I think I am going to try it again.

    VERY pretty! I'm learning to tat too (and smock) so I'm going to try to add my tatting to the sleeves of a baby dress.
