After a fabulous weekend with both of our son and daughter and their families, I started pulling out some of Rebecca’s dresses that have been packed away for Laurel. Sadly, many are already outgrown, as I missed the small window of opportunity to pull them out for a second generation. But this one is out of retirement.
The Little Sunday Dresses pinafore is just the right size for Laurel now. Smocked with Ellen McCarn’s monogram, the skirt and shoulder ruffles are Swiss embroideries from Capitol Imports. The bodice is Swiss batiste.
I had planned to pick out the monogram and re-smock it with Laurel’s initials. But the stitches are just old enough (25 years) and the blue floss just dark enough that I’m afraid the color may have marked the fabric permanently. So I’m just going to leave it.
