The Dress: A labor of love

Yup, definitely worth it! This post is mostly for me. I made Margaret's blessing dress (find pattern here) and it took me  6 long months. I had never taken on such a large challenge and I'm glad I did. It's too bad Mag's came out a little chunkier than I had anticipated! But it still fit, barely! So here it is, to give proof to all my efforts for my chunky munk!  

 Back detailed with Great Grandma's Vintage buttons Circa 1960 (aprox)


This is probably the best photo I have of her with her bonnet on. The darn thing just kep slipping off because I secured the ribbon wrong and was too busy to fix it. Oh well. I'm pretty sure everyone of my girls will be wearig this so I'll have at least one more chance, I hope, to get another photo.  Overall, it just made the day that much more special for me. Our first family heirloom!
