Another niece to arrive soon.
The mother and her family are 3000 miles away.
No problem having a baby shower.
We had a SKYPE shower.
Family gathered on the west coast.
Each one bringing a gift.
One by one we sat in front of the camera and showed our gift.
I made a dedication gown.
My great grandmother was a frugal lady.
She also love beautiful things.
She made fabulous laces.
When something wore out, she would save buttons and trim to reuse.
Some of that lace has been passed on to me.
Now I'm passing it on to the next generation.
Pin tucks on the bodice with vintage buttons.
Lace edge puff sleeves.
Large tucks at the bottom with lace and ruffle.
Underslip hemmed with more vintage lace.
Vintage button closer in back
Wrapped and tied with a hand made silk ribbon.
It's a joy to pass it on.
This is one of my favorite things to make.
