2 Creative Chicks Challenge #28 "Anything Goes" Mid Posting

Good Morning Everyone!

It's time for another challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks
Where the challenges are always"Anything Goes" but a card.

Here is a little outfit I made for or new baby granddaughter. She has not arrived yet, but is due as I write.

My daughter Amy is not a fan of pink but, I love pink ( and so do little girls).  My Mom (Mamaw to the grandkids) who is in Heaven always loved ice cream pink on little girls and babies.

I made this little ice cream pink set in honor of my Mom. I wrote a special note to Amy and explained why and told her it was from her Mamaw and me.  I modified the pattern because I wanted pleats in the bodice and skirt. I also hand embroidered on the front of the bodice , the sleeves, the bonnet, and the shoes. I made the little ribbon flowers with pearl buttons on the sides of the bonnet. I added little seed pearls to the centers of the embroidered flowers. I also made the bonnet stand.  It was very difficult to get good photos. I hope you are able to see the detail.

Patterns, fabric, thread, embroidery thread,  needle, seed pearls, pearl buttons, satin ribbon, buttons for back of dress, lace, interfacing,. Bonnet Stand- wooden stand, paint, glue, styrofoam ball, tulle netting, satin ribbon, silk flower.

Onto the challenge info.
