Baptism Dress

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, you can get baptized at eight years of age.  I have a daughter that is coming right upon eight and I made her a dress to wear to her baptism.  She won't be wearing it during the actual baptism (they have white jumpsuits for that), just before and after.

I used a modkidboutique pattern, Kyoko.  The fabric is a white with white embroidery lined with muslin.  I used white linen for the sash and grosgrain for the ties.

 The skirt is much more full when she wears the dress.  I also got her a white hair flower and necklace to wear.  I can't believe how quickly she has grown!

I'm impressed with how much you're getting done. It looks like you're all ready! Wish I could be there for all your upcoming events!
