For Sophie

I got to make the dress for a baby to blessed in. That's what I took time off wedding sewing for.
Here it is
 

 

It's two pieces. The simple satin dress;
 

And the lace jacket
 

 

There's not much I find prettier than a neat and narrow rolled hem. The sight makes my soul purr.
 

And finally, because I like the insides of clothes as much, if not more, than the out sides.
 

 

French seams and quarter inch bias binding...brings a tear to my eye.
