Without Further Ado...

I finally finished the blessing dress for Lexy. I love it. She picked such a cute pattern. It turned out perfect. I couldn't be more pleased. So here are the much anticipated photos of the finished product. Enjoy. Let me know what you think.

This is the back. I scored with some vintage buttons that I stole from my mom's stash. Finished it off beautifully.

I made a slip to go under it. Just a simple tricot slip with snaps at the top. The lace at the bottom went with the crochet. (Another snag from my mom. Thanks mom.)

This is the bow right in the front.

I decided as a little gift for my good friend I would make the bonnet and booties that came with the pattern. They were just so cute I couldn't resist.

The back of the bonnet. Lovely swirl pattern.

I put it on one of Iris' dolls that I figured to be around 2-3 months size to make sure it fit. So this is kind of what it looks like on a child. Until Lexy sends me some pics of it on her precious one, these will have to do. 


And the booties. Front view.

Front/side view.

Another front view.

Well let me know what you think. I am so glad Lexy asked me to make it. It was nice to be a part of that special day even though I couldn't be there for the actual blessing. I'm sure she was a beautiful baby and that it was special for all there.

Anyone that is looking for a special blessing dress, as long as I have 3 months to make it, I would love to make it for you. We can discuss price.

Thanks again Lex!

Just beautiful. I made a thread crochet blessing dress a few years ago for my youngest. It was so fun to make, as I'm sure yours was too. It turned out great. http://imtopsyturvy.blogspot.com/2010/04/flashback-friday-thread-crochet.html
