Allie's Easter Frock

My mother in law made Allie's Eaaster dress and we had enough fabric left just to make her a purse and dress a hat up for her. We went to the Cracker Barrel today and got the hat which had a pink flower and ribbon band around it. I took that off and will use those items for some CQ work later. Mildred did Shadow Stitching on the white waistband of the dress. Tons of tee tiny stitches...all done from behind on batiste fabric...I made a flower and a new hatband out of her dress fabric. I used 2 pieces of pipe cleaners to make her purse handle...I beaded it up, sewed it to the sides for stability...and now she has a really cool purse to tote, that matches her hat and dress. The button is just sewed on but I have velcro under the flap. i thought it would be easier for her to open and shut it. I also did French seams inside and it is lined. She will be so cute on Easter Sunday! :)

What a beautiful Easter dress! I particularly like the shadow work. I'm sure she's going to love dressing up in her whole outfit!
