A couple of weeks ago, we received an invitation for a christening.
Of course, a new dress was requested for Miss M.
I didn’t have enough time to shop for fabric (or try a new pattern) so I decided to pick a pattern that I had used before for a previous christening (Precious dress a pdf pattern from the Scientific seamstress) – simple and very easy to put together.
This version was completed in 2 late-night sewing sessions – including the hand stitched collar and the cute rick-rack details in the sleeves (my favorite):
To be honest, I wasn’t sure about my fabric choice (too babyish) but Miss M loved it and couldn’t be happier.
I do think it was okay for a christening, but I’m sure she won’t be using it that much. She is growing too fast, and I’m starting to favor other prints.
Well, that’s life, isn’t it? Sometimes, you just need to know when to move on …
