This weekend I made the bodice for Ruby's blessing dress.
diamond pintucks for now because I found this sweet lace trim for the neckline that I love. It was just too much with all the diamonds. I am making two dresses, one for Ruby and one for a friend, so maybe they'll make it into the next design.
And since I'm making two dresses, my plan is to perfect the pattern on this version and make a tutorial for the little dress on the next version. Is that something you'd be interested in? You'll have to be patient with me though ... I've got a lot coming my way soon.
The skirt of the dress is going to have a few rows of horizontal pintucks, and a sash at the empire waist. Very simple overall, but so far it is turning out exactly how I had envisioned it. I love when that happens.
