You may be tired of seeing this dress, but now it's finished. I made little bloomers for her to wear to cover that diaper when she's crawling around. He mom hopes she's not crawling by Christmas, but she sure is trying now. Of course a dress isn't the easiest thing in which to crawl.As I told you in previous posts, I wove the ribbon into the smocking so that it can be taken out easily after Christmas, thus, extending the life of this dress. Therefore, I made a placket all the way down the back with buttons. Otherwise, I might have just made a short opening with binding with the bows as closure. See that little piece of thread on the floor? I find those all over my house. Do you carry threads on your clothing everywhere you go, too? When I'm in town at the grocery store, or wherever, people always know I've been sewing!
Now, for number two. This dress is the sister dress to the one above. This one is for Lil'E. This dress also has a life after Christmas.
Now, it's on to Little Man's and the three big sisters' dresses. . . . . . . . . .
