The Blessing Dress

We have the most beautiful blessing dress for a baby girl. Someone handmade it for my sister Emily's daughter and she generously passed it on to me for Roo to wear. Yesterday it was Roo's baby sister's turn. I wonder who will wear it next?

It has a nice long skirt, with a band of satin on the bottom hem, just like my wedding dress.

The detail work on this dress is exquisite. The smocking is perfectly, gorgeously done, with a border of tiny hand-embroidered pale pink flowers. And I love the little ribbon ties on the sleeves.
