Another Dress Complete!

I'm happy to report that I've finished another order!

This pattern -- Amy by Children's Corner -- is a really popular style. Probably because it can be worn as both a blouse & jumper and a summer sundress.

The fabric is by Fabric Traditions, a lovely raspberry on pink floral print. I was really happy with the color of floss I had chosen, but before I started the embroidery I felt it needed another color to make it 'pop'...so I added the blue embroidered flowers. I love the result! :-)

Yesterday, I pleated the fabric for two identical bishops dresses, size 18 months. One is a custom order, the other is for my stock. I started the smocking tonight.

I also have two blouses/jumpers to assemble -- both Mary De by Children's Corner -- one a lavender floral print, size 1 (custom order) and the other a pink floral print, for my stock.

I was recently asked to stock the gift shop at our local hospital...what an honor! I'll let you know more when I have the details.

Well, tomorrow's a work day, so I'd better get the dogs settled and then get to bed. G'night!
