This vintage-inspired baby dress pattern features fagotting; the art of joining one fabric to another with finished edges. Fagotting was once a utilitarian embroidery stitch, worked in patterns to create beauty as well as function. Strictly decorative, the technique is used here as an embellishment to the otherwise plain bodice of this high-waist dress. Instead of bias binding, spaghetti turn-cord is used, resulting in consistency of design. Working with tatting thread, the bias is attached with a simple knotted stitch. Other embroidery includes bullion flowers. More class handout than pattern, Wendy will show you her tried and true methods for perfecting this temperamental stitch. Proper method for tying on and off, how to wrap and tighten, and correct placement of these knots is essential to making lifelike flowers. An extensively illustrated handout provides detailed instruction for constructing the garment as well as the embellishments with hand embroidery.
