Baby Rose View 2 with Scalloped Hem



Just changing the color of the fabric can make a big difference in the way a Baby Dress looks!
White is the classic color of Baby clothes.  Add a touch of pink embroidery and nothing is sweeter.


This dress has to be one of my all time favorites. 

 I made it for an article in Sew Beautiful magazine with the focus being - how to draft a Madeira Hem.  This dress has the scalloped hem in the front but a plain hem in the back.  What my friend calls a "Queen Ann front with a Mary Ann back".

I'm sorry but I don't know which issue this was in.
If any one of you knows, please tell.


The sleeve is attached with entredeux.  
It is also embellished with Maline Lace and embroidery.


The fabric is Swiss "Fairy Fabric".  The fabric actually had a #number to identify it but I thought this little dress looked like the fairies did indeed make it using such a sheer lovely fabric so I named it thus.  

This dress is a beauty!
