First Communion Dress

My Granddaughter Emma is wearing her Big Sisters First Communion Dress for her own upcoming First Communion.  I made it several years ago after much consultation with Big Sister and my daughter.
They wanted simple but pretty....and puffy sleeves.

But Emma's favorite color is Pink, not Blue.  So I had to change the ribbon to pink.

Emma trys it on for me last year.

Needs a wash and an iron.

But, she likes it.
The hem is made from several lovely Swiss trims all sewn together.
They go with the center band on the front yoke.

The fabric is Dotted Swiss and I used Angel Lace for all the lace edging.

I changed the ribbon, had it pressed and ready to go.  Then...

Emma broke her elbow.  Nice bright pink cast. 
 But she couldn't get the dress on.  

So it was sent back to me to fix.   More on this dilemma next time!

What a lovely dress! But oh dear! The broken elbow! "The best laid plans, etc." Good luck as you solve this problem.
