OK Ladies and Gents! I finally, finally, finally finished the lace baby dress. Without further words, I will post the pictures and let YOU tell me if you think it is good enough to gift to a very dear friend who has been really good to me...... (I hope, I hope, I hope).

Top left is the little heart shaped buttons I used; top right is the ribbon rosette I put at the neckline; bottom left is the front of the dress; bottom right is the back of the dress.

Oh MY!!!! Christine, it's absolutely beautiful and you must be giddy with excitement....what a perfectly wonderful gift it will be!!! :heart: :heart: :heart:

I'm quite pleased with it. The only thing that worries me is what if the person receiving it is not a "fancy" person, and only likes plain things?

Oh my! That is stunning!

I especially love the extra touches...the buttons...

Wonderful job!

Very pretty and so girly. Great job Christine.

Thanks, I am rather proud of this dress. I had a tough time motivating myself, but once I got going it went really quickly. Now that I am finished, it's on to the bedjacket that I promised my sister for Christmas LAST YEAR. She might get it by this Christmas!

I don't think you'll have to worry about that! When she sees this, you'll see. It is done so well and I am very impressed with your attention to the details. Very thorough and it's just perfect!!!

Hi Christine! :waving:

That is beautiful!

I hope your friend loves it. In a way it is simple. It has simple lines, and just a "simple" little lace pattern on the skirt and one simple little rosette. It's lovely. Mothers have a way of getting a little more accepting of things like this for their little dolls once they see them in them. She is not wearing this herself, and that makes a big difference. We all have our fingers crossed.
