Sunday....

Snoopy Dance!!!  The christening dress got finished, and DGD was baptized this morning while wearing it.   She was a happy camper through the entire regular Sunday morning service and charmed us all with her cuteness and personality.  Because, really, ladies, let's admit it --- one's own grandchild is the absolute cutest ever, right?   LOL

I made the dress from 100% cotton batiste and used machine embroidery designs that DDIL chose from a design collection I have,  from the Christening 2 Collection  at http://www.customkeepsakes.com/shop/product/christening-2-collection/
These machine embroidery designs are digitized to stitch out on very lightweight fabrics like batiste and organza, and they are gorgeous.

I will try to post a picture of the hem and dress, and hopefully it will work.   ;-)
Okay... looks like it worked so far.  I laid the hem over a navy blue throw, so that the embroidery design would show up better.   After it stitched out, I had to use my 10X magnifying glass to carefully (!!!) trim away the excess fabric below the scalloped hem.  I just want to hug whoever invented the OTT 'LED'  light with that 10x magnifying glass.

Thank you all for your kind comments. There is a long white satin bow that went around the empire waist, but I did not dare knot it before delivering it to DDIL. Abby had great fun gnawing on the bow all morning. (she is teething and gnaws on everything in sight)+

Doris, I can't say more than what has been said here. What lucky parents to have a grandma who can manage the sewing machine as you do. I still carry my bag shopping all the time; it rides in my car beside me and I think of you often. People admire it and ask, what is the .....B&B?
Nice to have a little girl to sew for, isn't it.
Rosey
