if you give me my first niece...


and she is as precious and as perfect as she can be...



i might just make her one of these...



she would definitely need little silk roses...



and pleated puffy sleeves...



she would not be able to live without pin tucks and dotted Swiss trim...



and i could not resist embellishing those silk roses with sweet little pearls and crystals right in the center...

i love you ruby!
i hope your blessing day is as perfect as you are.

I still love it! She will too!

Abby said...

Oh so beautiful. I've been looking for blessing dress patterns but have had bad luck. Did you make this from a pattern?

Tonya said...

WOW! Absolutely beautiful! Both baby and dress. Thanks for sharing this!

Steph said...

Tanya, you are so talented. What a beautiful dress for a really special day:)

Amy said...

this is gorgeous! You should seriously consider making and selling these. When my day comes along to have a baby- I'd want her blessing dress to be as precious as this!

Abby said...

I love your idea. My mom has saved my blessing dress and her and I have discussed having my baby wear it, too. But I kind of still want to make one.

Tanya said...

I'm really impressed that you made that! It's beautiful. (I'm a friend of Chelsea's, by the way).
