Pink Baby Rose Dress

Tucks and Pinstitch by sewing machine (Pfaff Creative 2144)
This is the yoke of View 2 Baby Rose.

Baby Rose pattern was named after my youngest Granddaughter Emma Rose. 
  Because it's a raglan style dress, it doesn't have much shape until you put it on a child and they it fits so wonderfully!! You will want to make everything raglan style.

I added lace insertion to the sleeve to fancy it up!  Do you notice the entredeux used between the sleeve and the dress front?  It's very pretty and so easy on a raglan style dress.

Lace insertion at the hem right over where the dress is hemmed.  And a bit of embroidery above it.  I didn't cut away the fabric from behind the lace and it is not only pretty but very stable!
To see more about lace click on The Different Looks of Lace.

Bullion Rosebuds at the base of the lace insertion on the bodice.

That's all for now!

I love that pattern... it is on my cutting table with fabric right now. Not to say it will get cut out, but it is there!

Linda said...

So beautiful, it makes me ache! @ Linda, I feel the same way, so I decided not to wait! Soon as I finish all the curtains for my camper (not fun), I'm starting an heirloom clothing "hope chest" for the future babies in our family. Three of Jeannie's patterns are in my stash, as well as her book of embroidery. I am quite set for making tons of things to be treasured for future generations. Even if I don't live to see the babies, my handwork will be passed on and I will be remembered for the love I put into it.

Just beautiful! Love the sleeves!

This little dress would certainly make any baby girl happy.

Jean said...

I'm making a "hope chest" for future babies too! :) You know what Jeannie, I wish you'd do a sew-along with this dress like you did the baby gown. That was so much fun. I'd buy the kit!
