My first dress for sweet little Noel is ending this evening on Ebay. She’s my newest little model, and stands just 10″ tall. This was my first dress for her, and she will be so sad to learn what happens around here… you model and then the dress will be sent off to some other little girl to wear… but *alas* your turn comes up again and you get to show off another pretty dress… it’s not too bad…
If you’d like to see her dress listing on Ebay, you can click on the picture at the right side bar, or you can click on this link that will take you to the listing…
You’ll be happy to see what I’ve gotten done on the dress that goes with the pink hat I showed you yesterday. If you didn’t read the comments you might not know, but that fabric the hat was sitting on was the fabric I was planning on using for the dress. I’m not finished, as I’m sure you’ll see, but you can see how the set is starting to take shape.
The sleeves are puffed and heirloom lace was added to the elasticized edge. My favorite Swiss Batiste lace is sewn in at the waist and you can see the embroidery floss I’ve picked out… any guesses what that’s for??
I left the skirt about tea length and hemmed it by hand.
I forgot to take pictures of it, but there are 3 tiny red buttons on the back covering the hidden snaps.
The inside bodice is lined with a white cotton fabric and all the edges are whip stitched in place.
Here’s one last picture to hold you over till tomorrow… and hopefully I’ll have more to show you.
See you tomorrow,
