It feels like just yesterday I held this little girl in my arms for the first time. I still remember her sweet little cry. I remember how quickly she stopped crying as she was wrapped really snug. I tried to imagine what it would be like to have this sweet girl grow up. Well growing up is just what she's done! I'm not sure where these last eight years have gone but they are gone and she's getting ready to get baptised.
Here is her dress all in white that she will wear to get baptised. She was so excited that I was making it for her. She sat by me and my ancient sewing machine, she handed me scissors, pulled out needles and spent a whack of time yanking her PJ's off so she could try it on for size. I really wanted it to fit her just right. I think it does.
I thougth it would be fun to make a little overcoat and sash for the dress to fancy it up for her. I'm pretty sure the anxiety of working with satin gave me a few extra gray hairs, but I think they were worth it. She looks beautiful and deserves her special dress on her special day.
I added a few little extra ruffles at the bottom to make it a bit more fancy for her. She loved it all so I say this project was a success.
(In case your wondering I used the Burda 9757 pattern)
