Dress bodice

Little Agathe’s little dress started out like this.

Nappy cover

Eleven months old, she was getting christened in July and her parents wanted a dress that was simple.

Nappy cover in box

Not a hint of lace, no ruffles, no froof and certainly no bonnet.

Dress in box

So, a small white silk dress with silver silk satin sash was envisioned with a matching white silk nappy cover.

Dress front

And after lots of fiddly sewing, it was ready.

Dress back

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!

  1. It’s stunning! Such a beautiful little dress- for a flower girl I presume? So sweet yet sophisticated. Great job.
