One Pattern, Two Different Looks

I thought that I would give you a peek at two of the dresses that I recently sent to baby Emma. Both dresses were made using pattern #122, and as you can tell, the looks are totally different! The pink dress was made from pink pima cotton, lace, and hand embroidery. The lace placement and hand embroidery are an original design.

While the second dress was made from a cotton print and trimmed with purple gingham. The panties were made using pattern #123.

This is the stage of construction where I added the bias trim and the little bow. I used my flexible curve to help me get the gentle curve to the bias tape. I slip stitched the bias trim by hand so my stitching wouldn't show. Don't you love a pattern that can be used over and over again?

Good Morning Michie! I love how you can get so many looks from just one pattern. Saves money when you can re-use the pattern. Wendy

Both dresses are oh so pretty, but I'm really liking the little purple number! I recently made your Sundress & shorts #121 for our grandgirl. Lime green gingham with pink, green, & yellow ladybugs, trimmed with yellow piping and green rickrack. I think she would love a little purple dress or top! Thanks for the inspiration!

Just LOVE the little purple dress and bloomers! The gingham was a great addition!

I rarely leave comments but I enjoy each and every post you make. It is like eye candy each time you show a new outfit!

Would you answer a question for me? I am having trouble attaching my smocked piece to a neckband without squashing the pleats to death. They also get rearranged leaving unattractive skewed pleats. It has been about 20 years since I have made any smocked outfits and I dont remember having this problem before. I guess I did something different, but I dont know what that was. Can you help? My email is paigejacksam@gmail.com Thanks! janie
