This light and airy heirloom dress (sizes 2 - 10) is a show-stopper!!! It is reminiscent of vintage heirloom dresses created with hours of hand stitching. Exquisite pinstitching embellishes the yoke and hem. Embroidered bows at the bodice and hemline are the finishing touch for a dress that will be perfect for portraits, birthdays, holidays or flower girl dress!

Included in the instructions is an easy method of creating the Madeira hem and yoke scallops, as well as detailed instructions on how to attach the hem with either a machine pinstitch, allowing the vintage style dress to be recreated in a fraction of the time. Narrow bias bands, tiny piping techniques and French seams are also covered in the instructions.

This dress can be made with a machine pinstitch/hemstitch, or if that stitch isn't available on the sewing machine being used, a machine blanket stitch, feather stitch, edgestitch or other decorative stitch can be substituted.

Either hand or machine embroidery can be used for the embroidery design. Embroidery templates for hand embroidery are included. A knowledge of hand embroidery is required as there are no “how to embroider” directions included. Machine embroidery can be substituted and a link to purchase the machine design is included.

Detailed instructions will provide the guidance needed to create this beautiful heirloom dress.

This pattern is an instant download purchase and will be available as a digital download from your Etsy Purchases as soon as payment has cleared.

The finished outfits are not included.

There are no pieces that require more than 2 pages to be taped together.

Just made this little hat to go with the diaper set. I made spaghetti bias in the matching pattern to my piping instead of using ribbon. It came out so adorable. Thanks Kim
