Babies look beautiful in white dresses, especially if the white dress is lovingly embroidered with delicate hand embroidery. The precious dress is styled with a high yoke, which is embroidered with gorgeous padded satin flowers with eyelet centers. Using traditional techniques learned in Puerto Rico, you will see how easily these beautiful flowers are created. Working on bright white linen with luscious Floche embroidery cotton, students will spend a glorious day creating this puffed sleeve confection. The gathered skirt of the dress is embellished with embroidery as well. More padded satin flowers, lots of eyelets, and Italian cutwork embroidery are artfully arranged forming the basis of this floral design. The hemline and neckline of the garment consists of hand-stitched buttonhole edging, the cornerstone of traditional embroidery. You will learn the proper method of tying on, route to travel, and how to end each stitch. The dress fits sizes 6mo-9mo.
Note: If you prefer, make it in a baby print or solid and eliminate the embroidery entirely.
