WARNING! CUTE PICTURES WILL MELT YOU...
In April I became Grammy to the most beautiful little girl. This is my first Grandbaby and I am over the moon in love with her already. The whole family is smitten and we look forward to getting to know her.
My younger daughter wanted to make a blessing dress for her baby niece so we took the new mom shopping before the baby arrived and she chose this pattern, Simplicity 8024, along with some beautiful eyelet fabric for the dress.
She also picked out these two trims.
My daughter and I worked together on this dress and had a great time picturing the sweet little girl wearing it. We followed the pattern directions but cut some of the length off of the dress. To finish the dress off, we layered the two trims on top of each other to create more fullness, then we stitched down the center to hold them together.
We then applied the trim at the waist seam, and a couple of inches above the hem line.
And this little angel looked more precious than ever on her blessing day!!!
I LOVE this Grammy gig!!
