baptism dress

{Yay for my computer fixin hubby-I love free tech support! I'm finally able to upload photos again!}

Saturday was Anna's baptism day. (In our church children are baptised when they turn 8) She has been so excited for this day for at least a year. I wanted to make her a white dress to wear after her baptism and I wanted it to be special. This sweet poem came to mind. As soon as I saw the baptism dress posted on Brown Paper Packages I knew I wanted to give it a try.  It was way over my sewing level, but I managed to get it done.  I changed out the top and used McCall's 5966 for the top-since I liked the overlap look. I stitched pearls to the neckline and made a sash to go with it.

It was a beautiful dress for a beautiful girl on a perfect day! Thanks to everyone who came and made it a special day.
