The Dunking Dress

To go along with the Baptism dress, I also made this sweet little dress for the actual baptism:

It is made with an intricate paisley eyelet with a lining underneath. Just perfect! The pattern is from Leila and Ben, The Sweet Dress.

And my goodness! You are all so sweet! Thank you for your kind comments about the Baptism dress. I even had several people who want a pattern-- you have totally made my week! I will start working on a pattern-- and I will need a few pattern testers. . .

What a perfect dress. I was baptized in the one my mom was baptized in, but I don't think it will be in too good of shape for my daughters. Thanks for the inspiration for something new! Love the dressy dress, too!

I know this post is a couple months old. But, I would love to test for you.

Wоah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simрle,
yet effectіve. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've ԁone а awеsome job with
this. Alsο, the blog lοаds νery fast for me on
Safari. Excеptional Βlog!
