Baby Blessing

I absolutely love doing blessing gowns and outfits for the new little babies and when a friend of mine asked me to do up something special for her newest blessing I was thrilled. She requested something in more of an everyday style rather then the long gown but keeping it white. So we went with Butterick's 3785 and some lovely white batiste fabric. I simply could not resist the urge to do some embroidery work on the dress and am quite pleased with the results. I then decided that a bit of lace was needed but was not happy with my original selection of lace. I then found another bit on Sat. and put it on this morning and I am soooo in love with the final results and I hope that my friend, Rory, will be as well. I just wish I was a better photographer as these photos or terrible and do not do this gorgeous dress justice.
