ANTIQUE TRIM found at a junk shop.
Three layers of shimmer and sparkle...all remnants from the remnant bin at WalMart.
A new trim where I removed the line of pearls to sew onto the dress.
I inserted old seam binding under the lace trim for more pink!
This antique trim below and above reminds me of the work of Karen Ruane at contemporary embroidery blog ...she has fabulous classes.
This grand daughter is all about PINK!! She is the baby and the dress is for the baby doll.
Been really busy. I am doing what I did at age 10 living in Spain where there was no TV in 1957, but many things to learn to do for your doll! A treasured time in my life where Mari Robles taught me to hand sew my doll clothes..... AND NOW 57 years later....I am still making doll clothes!! But this time for the precious grand daughter and not me! I am 67, she is 6. I have seven outfits in the works but want to just show you this one for now. I pick up dollar and two dollar remnants of fabrics all year long, trims and old seam binding at antique shops. Then the magic comes with what they transpire into....for a different little Cinderella! With the MAGIC of a NEEDLE and THREAD!! BLESSINGS at Christmas to YOU ALL!! CELEBRATE THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD!!
