When you think of classic sewing for children, an Heirloom dress always comes to mind. This project is ideal for your first Heirloom dress, especially if you are becoming more confident with these techniques. Susan creates a bodice with lace, Swiss insertion, and pintucks. Tiny featherstitching is also a part of the bodice, and Melissa teaches this hand embroidery technique. The puff sleeve is finished with lace beading and lace edging perfect for displaying a delicate silk ribbon. In addition to showing you how to make the dress, Susan walks you through the steps to redraft the Lee pattern for a slip to accompany this Heirloom dress.
