My friend Joytsna went to India for vacation and got me this gorgeous pink silk fabric.
I combined it with the red floral print silk organza and used a Burda pattern to sew it.
I left the edges of the flounces unfinished and fraying on purpose, it gives it a light feel.
Picture are from Roxana’s Baptism in 2012 (I was still pregnant at that time, hence the big belly)
A dress for Sonia.
I’ve taken inspiration from the Romanian folks wear, the traditional stitches and colors found on blouses.
The pattern is a little smoked dress, also known as a bishop dress.
I debated doing the hand embroidery and smocking…vs machine made…this time, the machine won.
For anyone with a great embroidery machine, here are some more designs I wanted to try…could no longer launch my Windows virtual machines, where the PED Basic was installed…oh well will have to re-do it one day.
Fabric: white poplin
Fabric stabilizer: starch spray
Thread: regular sewing thread for the embroidery, no shiny stuff

and I’m 35 weeks pregnant, yes it will be a girl.
