White Wednesday -Baby Rose Dress

This dress is from my OFB pattern "Baby Rose".
It is made from White Fairy Fabric, with a white  scalloped Hem.

The yoke has a pretty  Lace Embellishment.  I stitched the lace over the fabric and did not cut the fabric away from beneath the lace.
Between the Lace Insertion are tiny rows of machine stitched tucks.  Yes, I said machine stitched!  I used the edge foot to make them so easily and fast!
Bullion Rosebuds are at the tip of the Lace on the yoke.  And I attached the front to the sleeve (front and back) using entredeux.  Really easy with this pattern.

It has a fancy sleeve as well.  The Lace Insertion has been Machine Pin-stitched to the fabric, but the Featherstitch is all by hand!
The Scalloped Hem has been finished using the Machine Hemstitch.  The pink Featherstitching accents the white hem. 

Made by Me!!

Lovely. It reminds me of a baby dress that my mother made for me when I was a baby. You simply amaze me by the amount that you produce.
