New Baby Dress

Here is a picture of the blessing dress I just made for my youngest daughters baby. Next Sunday is the big day. I am getting faster, it only took me 3 hours to make it and I even put trim to match the daisy's at the top of dress around the top of a pair of socks. I cut the dress so the edge on the eyelet is the hem of the dress and the sleeve so I dont have to hem either one of them, how lazy is that? I also lined it because it is cold and eyelet isn't the warmest fabric. My daughter likes this style, it is a remake of an old pattern. Simplicity 2629. It turns out rather cute. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love the "eyelet edge/no hem" trick. When I first started sewing I would use the selvedge as my bottom hem in shirts. I know better now....but then that was "ooopteen" years ago, that I learned to sew.

  2. She will be gorgeous on her special day with that lovely dress.

  3. very cute. Makes it even nicer that it didn't take forever to make
