just in time

Gemma is being blessed tomorrow morning. I just finished the dress a few minutes ago. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?


I prefer simple, non-frilly blessing dresses. I used a basic pattern for the dress but the addition the lace and the pintucks on the bodice are my design. The pintucked fabric I used for the skirt was a remnant I picked up a year or two ago for a few dollars. I haven't used it before now because I didn't have much yardage. I am glad I finally found a use for it!

So cute! Have a wonderful day tomorrow. And don't worry about leaving it to the last minute...My mom made us Easter dresses every year and I swear there were a few years she didn't cut out the dresses till the day before, and there were 5 of us:) Gemma is lucky to have a mom talented enough to make such a wonderful dress...

The dress is very pretty! You had your 4th baby around the same time this year as I had my first..... so, I am wondering how you still find the time to sew? I only have one little guy and I havr been missing my sewing machine!
