Hailey's Blessing Dress

Well, now that my baby is 6 months old, I guess its about time to post pictures of her blessing dress from when she was 6 weeks old.  (Hey, give me a break...Lots has gone on in the last 6 months to keep things busy.)

I made the little pink flowers from some lace material which was suppose to be for the girls' Easter dresses.  :)   (I added pearls to the centers of the flowers the night before.)

I pleated the sleeve bottoms a bit.

I used snaps in the back instead of buttons.  It was so much easier.  (I hate doing button holes and sewing buttons on.)

I made little slippers and added a pink flower to them too.  They looked so cute on her tiny feet but because the fabric was slick, they didn't stay on that great.  But since the dress was so long it didn't really matter...All just for a picture.  :)

I made the bloomers using the tutorial found here. The little flowers on her bum looked so cute.

I made a little head band for her too, with flowers of course.  I made the head band with soft elastic (like what you would make a bra or panties out of) and it was perfect.  Isn't she so sweet and tiny?

Of course when I was trying to get pictures of her, she was asleep and wouldn't wake up.  Oh well, you gotta love a sleeping baby.
