Beautiful Blessing Dress

It's done (well almost).  I need to find some buttons and serge the inside of the sleeves and then it is done.  It has turned out so beautiful.  I love it.  I just can't take a picture to show you how beautiful it is.  I have worked long and hard on this, hoping to get it done before the 1st of October and I'm proud to say except for a couple of last minute things it is done.

Here is a closer picture of the top.
I love the pintucks.  They turned out perfect.  I chose to move them closer together then in my original trial run.  I ran the diagonal lines at 3/4 of an inch.  The sleeves are just soo cute all puffy and fun.  The lace just adds the finishing touch.

Here is a close up of the hem.  I bought this lace at a garage sale and it is just so pretty.  I love the 5 rows of pintuck that I added.  It just gives it that finishing touch.

Can you tell I love it???  I am so proud of myself even more so since it isn't the day before she is being blessed.  Here is the link to the original post if you want the pattern I used.  I got my inspiration from Homemade by Jill for the pintuck.


  1. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I am VERY impressed!!! I can't wait to see her in it!
