All in White

My little niece asked if I would make her something for her baptism. She knew I was working on a blessing dress for my baby grand daughter, Nahla. Gracee wanted something special too.My mother has collected a lot of lace which I used in this dress. Layers and layers of lace and toile.

I used my base pattern from the Olivia Skirt from the Butterfly Kisses pattern line. The flower embellishment is layers of fabric and lace with strands of lace and ric rac hanging. I stitched antique buttons to the center. This is removable. We have yet to find and embellish a cute sweater to go with the skirt.There are still a few more weeks to finish this project. Of course, she will need leggings and a headband.

This is the blessing dress I have been working on for Nahla. I used the base of a onesie. On one side I did swirls of cotton ruffles and flowers with stitched pearls in the middle of the stitched roses. On the other side I used swirls of lace and toile. I used yards and yards of lace and toile.
