The dress...part 2

I think this deserves it's own post. Finally, the baptism gown. Go ahead...oooo and ahhh. I still do! I can't believe it came together so well! It just turned out perfect.




Perfect shoes - a gift from our friend Desire'!




Some details...

Nope, I didn't finish the buttonholes. I didn't have a buttonhole foot and couldn't bear to have them be crooked. If I did them by hand they would have been. She went to church pinned in! :) I'll finish it when my buttonhole foot comes in.



Two months worth of planning and sewing for one little 10 minute event! It was worth it. In fact...that sounds like the other time this fabric was worn!

Oh, Ariana, it's beautiful! Exactly the kind of item that can be passed down the generations for more "ten minute events!" It'll have the story of having been your wedding dress and of all the family babies who've gotten to be baptized in it. Very precious.

Let's see, first you made a beautiful baby (albeit with some help), then a beautiful dress, and then some great photography. Your little girl is blessed to have you for a mama.
