Pink Bearissima Easter Smocked Baby Bishop Dress

60pinkswissowensdressandslip2013 00660pinkswissowensdressandslip2013 007Just finished this precious 12M bishop smocked in a plate from AS and E issue 87 called Little Wonder. Customer didn’t want the ribbon woven thru, so I added an off white cable row at the top to balance the colors. The off white area has little offwhite glass beads.60pinkswissowensdressandslip2013 009 Sleeves are 3/4 and have ivory lace. There is a matching slip underneath, too.

More Ivory Bearissima Dresses A S and E Cupcake and Twinkletoes Lily of Valley laces

ivorybearrissimadresses 007ivorybearrissimadresses 005ivorybearrissimadresses 011I finally got the box off to Malaysia today. Along with the heaven sent/ priya I posted about before, I did Cupcake, a shoulders down smocked dress size 5, Twinkletoes enlarged to a size 5 and a set of booties to match the twinkletoes I sent a few months ago.I had to make them a bit bigger, as well. I am sure her pictures when the children have them on will be much better than the ones I have taken. I used Ivory Bearissima and lily of the valley maline laces. These dresses are very time consuming to make. ivorybearrissimadresses 003

Preemie Clothes for Baby Adeline

Baby Adeline arrived at 29 weeks, 2 lbs 12 oz. She is now 3 weeks old and doing well. They have begun dressing her so I have a box ready to put in the mail tomorrow. I used several free patterns I found online for these. We will see which work best. I have so many little pieces of really nice fabrics, I plan to make some to send to the hospital from time to time. I know they can always use them. preemieclothes 003preemieclothes 002preemieclothes 001preemieclothes 005
