Dedication Gowns

We dedicated the girls to the Lord in the presence of our church family on January 23, 2010.  These gowns were made using embroidered linen, silk ribbon, and mother of pearl buttons purchased by the girls’ great grandmother. I used McCalls 4865 for the bodice and sleeves and the skirt is simply 45″ of the scalloped linen gathered to fit the bodice.  The bonnet made from the tutorial found at Sharon Ann Burnston’s site.  I hope these little gowns are passed down as generations are dedicated to the Lord.

Aeralind Grace  (Hymn of Grace)
I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Psalm 146:2 

Bronwyn Hope (Steadfast Hope)
…Continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard.
Colossians 1:23

Here they are together:

And a detail of the back of the dress and cap:

I’d make these set to sell if anyone is interested.
