I made Opal a special dress.
A retro dress much like I wore when a baby.
It has tucks, hand embroidery, and special finishing.
The fabric is a light blue batiste with a gorgeous hand.
The pattern called for elastic and lace at the edge of the sleeves. I chose a bound edge instead with gathers.
When JoAnne's had dollar patterns, I found this reissue vintage pattern from 1952.
I snapped it up because it has numerical significance. I was born in 1952. Thirty years later I gave birth to my only baby girl. Thirty years after that she gave birth to her own baby girl. Sometimes things just line up. Serendipity!
