"Southern Belle" toddler ensemble

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The entire ensemble is lovely. It is so feminine and sweet. There are also silk organza armlets for the outfit but they chose not to use them for the photo. All of the handwork detail work made this truly a haute couture ensemble. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be very patient and utilize your hand sewing skills to the maximum for all of the detail work. It is worth it.

What you will need

  • White batiste for bodice. Haboti silk for sash
  • armhole binding and petticoat ruffle binding
  • and slippers. Embroidered organza. Purchased ribbon flowers for slippers and hat. Horsehair (crin) for hat. Stretch lingerie lace for bodice of petticoat. Silk organza for bottom of petticoat and ruffles.
