Pink Baby Rose View 2

Today I will show my pattern "Baby Rose Raglan Dresses" - View 2
Still a fancy little Baby Dress but totally different than View 1.

I am using Pink fabric.
Bear Threads Pink Swiss Lawn is a good choice for this dress.
Other fabrics I recommend are Swiss Fairy Fabric and Bearisima 2.

All are lovely shades of soft pink.

The feature on this dress is the collection of tucks, lace and embroidery at the top of the Baby Dress.
Groups of tiny sets of tucks have lace insertion between them and the fabric is slightly gathered at the neck. 

Delicate but very sweet.

Accented with Featherstitching and Bullion Rosebuds.

In the above picture, you can see that I did not cut the fabric away from behind the lace.  This makes the dress less transparent and gives it a pretty old fashioned look.  

The dress is also much more durable.

Any time you cut the fabric from behind the lace, it is going to be a more fragile garment.

I added Lace Insertion to the sleeve which is included in the pattern directions (again, fabric is intact behind the lace) and I  attached the sleeve using Entredeux.  This was easy because of the raglan sleeves.

Entredeux always fancies up a dress!

The Baby Dress has a turned up (to the back) hem, with Lace Insertion placed just at the top where the hemming line would be.  Embroidery is centered above the lace.

Old Fashioned Embroidered Bullion Roses at the hem.

I like to put a label inside my Baby Dresses.

Baby will be well and smiling and ..

Pretty in Pink!!
