Miss Gioia

T minus four days till we board a plane for the US. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute. The baptism dress took about two weeks to complete. It was a bit tricky at times, especially with the french seams on the side.

I fell in love with certain details, though. Like this little sleeve. So pretty.

To recap, this is the Princess Isabella dress from AS&E Issue #86. As I noted before, this dress was made from a kit. Delivery was really delayed (by months). The Country Bumpkin people sent some substitute trims so I could finish in time, but they sent two different types of entredeux. As a result, the hem lacework is in two pieces, not a single piece. Even worse, the front doesn't match the back. Probably I will be the only one who notices, but GRACIOUS! This wasn't a cheap kit. Which makes this even more frustrating.

Small quirks aside, I do really like how it turned out. While she is not perfect, I think this little dress will be lovely for Miss G's baptism day. I have tights and shoes making their way to my in-laws house. Yay!
