|First of all let me introduce you properly to Miss L. Here she is at almost two years old. She has been a diva since day one.. Oy Vey!|
As you can imagine, I'm not too thrilled about doing all those pick ups and I was hoping to make something a bit more classic maybe. Here is another choice:
This is just like a miniature wedding gown... hours of draping on that skirt there.
What happened to simple First Communion dresses like this?
So we made a compromise and have agreed on this one..
I will be changing it a bit but it will look similar to the pink dress on the bottom right drawing. I'm almost halfway done. The hardest part so far has been making the petticoat. Those of you who sew vintage , do you have a hard time making petticoats? I've cut yards and yards of tulle layers and I still need to tack them to the slip. We are doing the dress in silk shantung with silk organza roses and sash.
