French Handsewers Guild Meeting.

This is a vintage family Dress and Baby Sacque that belongs to a member.
Today was my  Saga Guild meeting - The French Handsewers.
We had Show and Share. 

Love the tiny tucks!
The Bodice of the dress.

And the unusual hem.  Very pretty and fine!

A blanket ready for a new Grandson.

Miss Carmel came to visit.  She used to visit us in my Shop before I closed it.  
A Daygown made from a pretty print.  Seeing this little print Daygown inspires me to make one using a sweet little print like Carmel did.  


Ladies always gather around pretty lace!!

And... we stitched our tucks on our Daygown!  
This was the first step in making our Daygown.  The tucks are stitched by hand because they are sweeter that way and no one needed to have a machine for the program.

Next month we will be working on it again.
  I can show you how we progress!

*whispers* saga -chapter- meeting. (I'm having trouble with that, too.)

I love love love that little dress and sacque. The fabric is so delicate looking, and those teensy tucks are perfect. Is it completely hand sewn?
