Sweet Gingham Dress....




My first attempt at silk ribbon embroidery has found it's home. I actually had this little dress in mind before I even started the embroidery. I love gingham and I thought this would make the sweetest dress with knotted ties on the shoulder. I am planning to make a diaper cover for it later this week and maybe a headband as well.






I made it a size two. So, unfortunately I don't have a little girl to model it for me and you. I'm hoping that one day I will get that etsy shop up and running...and this will be one of many items that will find a new home. Note to self: stop sewing long enough to start working on the etsy shop!!! Pronto!!!

I just stumbled onto your blog. I was browsing through your photos and spot reading. I wanted to say that you do absolutly gorgeous work. Everything you have made on your blog is beautiful, including your children! (You definitely made them too.) I have bookmarked you so that I can keep seeing all the inspiring stuff you make. God bless.

I know small yardage amounts of your crochet edging would sell....;)
