I enjoy creating new, beautiful articles of clothing. I have the knowledge to take a picture of a piece of clothing and recreate it pretty darn close. I am no designer. I am a pattern maker and seamstress.

In this blog, I get to "show off" some of my lovely creations. I do take requests. In fact, I prefer original pieces. They are intriguing, exciting, and unique.

The "Celeste" Blessing Dress

Beautiful baby, Beautiful Dress.

This dress I used Polyester Shantung accented with rose gimp and white pearls. The matching headband is pearlized stretch fabric with the gimp and pearls.
I love this dress!
This dress features a square neck lined, shirred bodice trimmed with roses and pearls.

The full skirt has two tucks, trimmed with the same rose and pearls.
It also has a beautiful ruffle hem, made of the same fabric.

The back of the dress is closed with a zipper, and accented with a satin ribbon tie.
Shoes & socks were found and purchased separately. They go along perfectly.

The "Kaili" Baptism Dress

This Baptism Dress is made of 100% nylon tricot with sheer tricot overlay. The empire waist and round neckline are lined with dainty pearls. The bell sleeves and overly hem are trimed with a delicate lace. A ribbon bow with flower accents the center waistline. The back has two pearl button closures. A delicate dress for any young girl on her special day.

Pearl and lace trimms go beautifully together.

The ribbon bow and flower adds the perfect final detail.

The "Lillian" Blessing Dress

The "Lillian" Blessing Dress is a shorter, simplified version of the previous, "Celeste" Dress. The skirt length is 16" as opposed to the 21" of the "Celeste".
For this dress, Polyester Satin Charmeuse was the fabric of choice. It features simple, straight short sleeves, a square neckline with bodice shirring, and two tucks in the skirt, all accented with pink rose gimp.

The back has button closures and a small satin ribbon tie.
A lovely dress for any baby girl.
