Eyelet Blessing Dress


Eyelet Blessing Dress

Our Mom is very talented and she makes blessing dresses for all granddaughters and great granddaughters.  

To make these, Mom uses a dress pattern that she likes and make the bodice and and sleeves from it.  Then she makes the skirt the length that suits her mood.

For fail proof gathering and no worrying about thread breaking,
zig~zag over a light piece of string or I use crochet thread 
(be careful not to catch the string).
After you sew the length of the area to be gathered just pull the string for perfect gathering every time.
(Secure one end.) 

 Thanks for sharing Mom.
