What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the Simplicity 4766 pattern for the dress and used a McCall's M4865 for the bonnet. There are so many sheer fabrics already embroidered for you as well as many different lace fabrics. The Simplicity pattern also includes a hooded cape that' really pretty. The McCall's pattern includes a slip pattern and a blanket pattern. You can just mix and match and be creative!

Just love it. I have yet to find sheer fabrics already embroidered here in Australia. Could you please tell me where you purchased it? Many thanks.

I bought the fabric from Joann's Fabric. They have a website at

Thanks for that. After looking at all your projects you certainly are a very gifted and "busy" lady.
