It's been funny expecting a baby girl, I find I'm not drawn to ruffles, lace, satin--the frills so much.
I was telling my mom I'd have pictures of the blessing dress on the blog today and she said she was excited to see it, and I told her it's nothing to write home about, pretty basic and plain jane. She wouldn't find hours of beading or layer upon layer of chiffon ruffles in to this dress. I guess the girl is starting out frumpy like her mom, if babies can be frumpy.
But I like the simplicity, and it ended up what I wanted for my little girl.
I guess in my mind I was thinking more in the realm of making an heirloom that she'll hopefully keep for her own daughters and pass it down over the generations, and so I guess the minimal detail seemed more "timeless" to me?
So it's simple and basic.
I knew I wanted white eyelet.
I really love eyelet fabric. It's usually just an embroidered cotton with holes usually in the design.
I found an eyelet with the embroidery more of a matte finish that I liked better than the shiny finish.
