It was such a joy & delight to make this dress for my little granddaughter. Through the years, I've learned various heirloom sewing techniques. This dress includes many of them: hand smocking, hand silk ribbon embroidery, pin tucks, entredeux, lace shaping and beadwork.

Oh my goodness, what an exquisite baby dress! So many details in it. That really is an heirloom.

Thank you Marilee! I consider that a wonderful compliment. It really is a culmination of many years of learning all these techniques. And I did not have a pattern to go by. I designed the dress start to finish. It was such a pleasure to make!
