Dainty Light Blue

Another project finished!
I just love light blue on baby girls.
This dress was made of Imperial batiste.
The pattern is Chery Williams bishop.

The sleeve...

I embroidered little bullion roses along them hemline.

The plate I used is called Lullaby, from Austrailian Smocking and Embroidery #76.
I just changed the flowers, but the waves are the same.
Don't you miss that magazine? I do!

We went for my daughter's 20 week (21 weeks and 2 days!) ultrasound
today, and we got to see the baby waving at us.
Aren't babies just such miracles? Every single one of them!
I wonder if the baby is a girl that will wear this dress?
If the baby is a boy, the dress will wait
for another grandchild or special friend.
I will be equally excited either way!

Happy Sewing!


  1. I agree with you on blue on little girls. I love a deep yellow to! This dress is beautiful...some little girl is gonna be a princess wearing this...

  2. What a beautiful, classic dress! I especially love the bullions at the hem--such a pretty touch.

  3. This bishop dress is simply beautiful, so delicate and feminine. You did a lovely job on this one!
