What’s On My Table Wednesday?

So I’ve been a tad MIA.  I know…I know.

BUT we bought a house (HUGE STEP)!!!  Annnnd I have my very own sewing space!!!!  I could not be happier.  But more on that later……

Sooooooo before our move, I was asked to make a lace dress for a sweet friend’s daughter.  A 1st Communion Dress to be exact.  I have never made one before but her sweet mama guided me as to lengths and such.  She found something she liked and I tried to recreate something similar.

I used the Gabrielle-Fae pdf pattern.  I’ve made that one a few times now.  So I modified it a tad to get the overlay just right. It really turned out so sweet and Miss E. got to wear it a couple of times!  Hopefully my stitching will last so it can be an heirloom dress for her to hand down to her future generations.  I love that the scalloped lace hem was so perfect on the sleeves.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell online exactly what size is going to look right in comparison to the person wearing it.  But it lined up perfectly there 🙂

She is absolutely darling!  Thanks for letting me make this for your special day!

 

Until Next time,
