Finished at last!
The gorgeous dress (no snickers at the fabric choice the toddler made) is finished at last!
Vintage Strawberry Shortcake with little strawberries and vines for contrast. This baby has an attached slip, double ruffle, narrow hems that I hid rather invisibly beneath the lace on the ruffle and the ribbon on the sleeves -- which were a total success, because they look like Cinderella sleeves!
The back features a needle-tatted button loop and this darling green button. Dern thread kept twisting up on me while I was making the loop. I forgot to pick up some DMC, so shame on me. Had to use the all-purpose sewing thread for the loop.
Next--matching dress for Bitty Baby, who is sporting a small collection of handmade diapers now.
