A veil accompanies each dress.
Here's a closer look at the front and back of my favorite.
Now, Kathy didn't stop there; she had just enough fabric left to make a dress (a size 4-5) for the oldest granddaughter. She used a piece of lace for the bodice and ribbons to make a headband. There is also a beaded headpiece. All of these elements came from the original gown. Hopefully, this special dress will be worn in turn by each of the granddaughters as they grow.
Kathy was going to deliver the dresses to her friend this afternoon, and I can only imagine how delighted she must have been. How lucky these little girls are to have such a loving grandmother, and how lucky the grandmother is to have such an incredibly talented seamstress friend.
Thank you, Kathy, for letting me share your photos and wonderful work with my readers.
