Ms. Dot’s White Nelona Embroidered Baby Dress (Old. Fash. Baby)

Ms. Dot created a precious dress that will take your breath away! She used Old Fashioned Baby’s "Best Embroidered Baby Clothes" Pattern, View 3, but as always, added her special touch! The Swiss tiny beading/entredeux used in the seams coordinates so well with the Maline Lace design!
This sweet white Nelona dress features delicate embroidered flowers, leaves & stems on the collar, between vertical insertion lace on the front, and all around the bottom of the dress in a "fancy band". Some of the flowers were embroidered in soft variegated colors, giving a beautiful dimension.
Ms. Dot always makes a slip to go with her little baby dresses, and this slip has lovely embroidery around the hem and a touch at the front neck. The embroidery design is included in the Old Fashioned Baby pattern.
Instead of putting a back placket in the dress, she chose to button it down the back, giving her opportunity to embellish the buttons and buttonholes with delicate embroidery. Each button has a different color flower embroidered to coordinate with the dress embroidery. Maline lace insertion was added in vertical rows on either side of the back opening.
The pictures just do not do this dress justice! To see it is to LOVE it!!
