All I need to do is whip stitch the bodice linings to the skirts.
This is Larsen's dress. She's the 6 year old grand daughter of my friend, Diana. She likes purple, so purple it is. I used this trim that I had in my stash that I got from an antique store. I love it. The eyelet on the hem is also from my stash, but I don't remember where or when I got it. I love to embroider, so last night while I was relaxing in front of the tv, I got these flowers done, so they would be ready to attach to the dresses today. As you can see, these are very simple.
The next on is for Edie, the 5 year old grand daughter of Diana. She LOVES pink. This is as pink as it gets. I love rick rack.
Last but not least is Rylan's dress. She's Diana's 3 year old grand daughter. She doesn't have a favorite color yet. I couldn't decide what color to use, until I saw this sweet fabric. I loved the way the three fabrics look together. The hues are the same. On this dress, I used a piping that I also got at an antique store. You may need to click to enlarge the photo so you can see it better. It looks like it is scalloped or braided. I also added the ribbon with picot edging around the embroidered medallion with the bow and long streamers down the front.
I wonder if my grand daughters would like dresses made like these?
Notice the hangers! I got two like this and two solid satin ones at a consignment shoppe the other day. All four were only $1.00!
