I had seen a dress in an antique store with a lace and embroidery design which inspired this sweet baby dress. A little lace shaping was required, then the lace was stitched down with a tiny zigzag stitch.
I chose to gather the lace edging just enough so that it would lie flat. Emma still needs to be the star attraction, not the dress.
And of course a little lace and embroidery were needed at the hem. Emma can't possibly be enjoying these dresses as much as I am enjoying making them for her!
