Suzette Sews Best Embroidered Baby Clothes 1

Suzette finished this Class Project.  
Kinda cute, I think!!
Thanks Suzette for letting me show off your little dress!

The class featured hand stitched Whip or Overhand Tucks (seen below the lace insertion) and machine stitched 1/8" tucks.

The Whip Tucks were even done on the hem in a curve and accented with Bullion Rosebuds.

When I reprinted the Best Embroidered Baby Clothes One pattern, I included the design in my pattern.  You can see in the illustration that I used a different sleeve, but the puff sleeve is also in the pattern.

Sweet and Old Fashioned!

What a gorgeous little dress. I would love to learn how to do those whipped tucks. They just really make that little dress pop.
