Almost finished with Baby A's Christmas Dress! Sorry for the delay in posting to my Blog, but I was having troubles yesterday with uploading pictures.
As you can see, the dress is nearly finished. I thought I would have it finished by yesterday, but I've been fall cleaning and shampooing carpet and there was a day or two that I didn't get any crocheting done at all.
All that needs done is the buttons on the back, then it needs a hand washing and blocking... and also a bit of ribbon to be woven in the eyelet rows. I'm not going to add ribbon to the skirt bottom though; just around the sleeves and at the waist. I will use white ribbon.
I'm thinking that a little slip might be needed underneath, and I have some red satin that would be perfect.
Notice there are little holly berries on the wreaths, done with embroidery French knots.
So when all that's done, I'll post one final picture of the completed Christmas Dress.
