This elegant, white on white baby pinafore dress features a cutwork butterfly and posy motif. The scalloped hem is edged in hand-worked buttonhole stitching. The neckline and sleeves are bias bound and edged in imported tatted edging. Precious hand whipped pin tucks adorn the bodice, which is further enhanced with cutwork stitch, Pisa cutwork (also called Pisa work), and perfectly executed buttonhole stitches. Wendy illustrates the proper way to cut the voided areas of the fabric away without fear, and how to properly hold the fabric while wrapping the turned edges of the open area. By the end of the day, you will be wishing you’d learned this fabulous technique sooner.
