Smocked Infant Gown finished!

Here is a photo of the smocked infant gown that I posted about earlier.

The baby's initials are hand embroidered on the bodice:

The hemline features more bullion roses and faux pearls:

This was a special request for a dear customer who wanted it for a baby gift. I hope the new mom loves it! It was a joy to create. :o)

Hand Smocked Dupion Silk Bishop!

This was a special request for a customer. I just love the way it turned out. The camera could not quite capture how gorgeous the color of the dupion silk though. It is such a rich teal color.

There are seed beads sewn into the smocking and bullion roses in each "point."
I hope you have a great week! I'm busy trying to finish up the little slip to the baby daygown that I posted a peek of below :o) Then I need to get busy on my Easter orders! I'll post more this week.

Vintage ruffles!

Here is a set I created for a sweet customer. It is a version of my Valentine's Ruffles dress on my website. It is a 3pc set featuring a ruffled underdress with a vintage Swiss embroidered bodice, ruffled pantaloons and a ruffled, floral overdress. I think the colors and fabrics have such a sweet and vintage feel to them.

Smocked Infant Gown

Here is a little sneak of a hand smocked infant gown that I am creating for a dear customer. This is the edge of the bodice. It is loaded with bullion roses, rosebuds and pearls.

I will post some full photos of my other smocked Easter dress previews soon. I don't want to spoil the surprise for my customers, so I want to make sure they have received them first!
Have a great day!
