Little Agathe’s little dress started out like this.
Eleven months old, she was getting christened in July and her parents wanted a dress that was simple.
Not a hint of lace, no ruffles, no froof and certainly no bonnet.
So, a small white silk dress with silver silk satin sash was envisioned with a matching white silk nappy cover.
And after lots of fiddly sewing, it was ready.
French seams, silk covered button, fully lined in white silk.
You may be thinking that the back hemline is not straight. You are correct: there was a little extra fabric to cover her nappy.
Sorry the photography isn’t great on this, will do better next time!
