Finishedheavenblessedpriya 002Finishedheavenblessedpriya 004Finishedheavenblessedpriya 003Finishedheavenblessedpriya 001I have just finished another ivory swiss batiste dress going to Malaysia. This one is a combination of Heaven Blessed and Princess Priya from the Australian Smocking Magazines. The hem has a shadow work bow at the top of each  mixed in with the bullions across the bottom. The sleeves tie with the same silk ribbon. The back buttons with mother of pear buttons sewn on with bullion flowers. The sleeves also have a scalloped lower edge.
