Elizabeth’s Dress

Elizabeth's Dress

This is the first dress that I have ever made completely by myself. It is completely stitched by hand and I am quite proud of it. Elizabeth, Dan and I’s two year old niece, absolutely loves new clothes, this was a big hit with her. I decided to make one for her as well as Grace, one of our other nieces who is four. I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed having a “project” even if it does make me seem like a sixty five year old woman.

Every single stitch on the dress was done by hand. After completing the whole dress, however, she informs me that she probably would have done the straight line stitches with her machine.  I love my grandma and really appreciate all of the tips she gave me while I was making the dress.

    I did let it out about 4 inches and it went beautifully. She has a little room to grow in and it fits over her head now! 🙂

    Great! I thought it was so cute. I am glad that she can wear it.
