Too bad this dress is hard to photograph today, because it is one of my favorite little girl dresses that I have sewn. I used a turquoise embroidery thread to hand embroider the blanket stitch around the yoke and at the top of the pockets.
My sewing machine did not like trying to make buttonholes on this fabric, and produced very sloppy-looking buttonholes. I covered up the mess by embroidering over the buttonholes with buttonhole stitch to match the edging.
The dresses will be on their way to my niece today along with a useful white cardigan sweater. Now that I am done sewing kids’ clothes, it’s back to the regular sewing routine.
