Description

A pink dotted swiss baby dress…dress copied from a vintage dress featured in Sew Beautiful magazine several years ago. I used a basic square yoke pattern for the dress, and drafted the scalloped collar and hemband by hand. Smocked with half space baby waves. Yellow bullion rosebuds dot the scalloped hemline in front, with green embroidery attaching the scallops all the way around the skirt.

Pink and white dotted swiss, pink 100% cotton

    I like this for my girls! I wanted to do something like this for them but couldn’t understand how to do the details. Sew, ….they never got one! Now, I’m stull not sure they’re getting one!

I think I’ll stay with regular sewing and sit back and admire your pretty dress. lol
