Lily's Dress

 This is Lily's baptism dress.  It has been living at our house for two months.  Two.  You heard me right.  Lauren went shopping with Suzanne and Lily and picked a cute pattern and some very cute fabric.  They even cut it out at Suzanne's house.  Then it came to live at our house.

Today Lily's dress is on it's way back home to it's birth place, Colorado.  Yup.  It is making the long journey back to where it was born/hatched/conceived.

The reason it is going on at part of the 'FIX or MEND IT' post is because of all of the fixing and mending I had to add to this project.  I did at least three hours of hand sewing.  No kidding.  I think it was worth it. 

Note to Suzanne:  You may want to hand wash this and hang it dry.  A light ironing will do the rest.  This will not be that durable dress she can wear for years and it will hold up through anything.  Repeat after me, del - I - cate.  :-)
