This is what I've gotten done so far on the bishop dress for our 3 month old grand for Christmas. The ribbon is woven in and can be taken out easily, so this can be worn after Christmas through Valentine's Day!I've mentioned that I am helping to plan a wearable arts fashion show for our local arts council that is to be on November 13th. If you live anywhere near here and would like to come, let me know. I have some tickets to sell. There is a link on my side bar to two sites where you can learn more about the show. You quilters out there will be interested in knowing that Rachel Clark will be doing a trunk show in the morning before the runway show.
This is one of the three dresses that I will have in the show. I made this 5 years ago for our oldest granddaughter (then 5 years old) to wear in her aunt's (our middle daughter) wedding as the flower girl.
This dress also had inserted lace. Her dress was also fully lined with the same batiste. I bought this fabric and lace at a store in Gastonia, NC. Mary Jo's is the name of the store, if I remember correctly. It is a huge store. I wish it was near where I live!
