Pattern #124-S includes sizes 3 to 24 months, while #124-L includes sizes 2 to 5. The dress features tiny tucks in the front and buttons all the way down the back. The unusual color combination really gives a simple dress an elegant look!
Mint and ecru cotton verona gives this outfit a dressy look.Purchased tatting and tiny pearl buttons adds a touch of elegance.
The frog is stitched with basic stitches that can be found in the "Heirloom Embroidery Book." The green frog's body is Shadow Embroidered with three strands of floss. (Sorry it doesn't show up well in the photo.) His body is stitched with a Back Stitch, and 3 strands of floss, and his face is stitched with Granito Knots and Back Stitch, using two strands of floss.
After the embroidery was completed, I cut out the front of the shirt and marked the pleats with a blue wash-away marker.
If all goes as planned, I will be able to sit outside and embroidery this evening while my husband spreads mulch in the flower beds. Stay tuned for the next phase of the project!Michie'
