Since I'm a BIG heirloom sewing fan, I'd love to see the gown, Alas the only link working is the last one.

The fuchsia and rosettes are unbelievably gorgeous. The embroidery is breathtaking. What a seamstress you are! I didn't think it could get any better until I saw your granddaugter wearing it. This was such a joy to read. Thanks for sharing.

What an amazingly beautiful christening set! You did a great job! Great review, too! Also, there's always a learning curve for anything new, so don't be hard on yourself. You really did a great job with the set and with this review!

Oh my, this is so breathtakingly beautiful that I got a little wiggly inside oohing and aahing over the exquisite details of this christening ensemble. I believe you put your heart and soul into this work of Art. Good grief! This is your first review! And in fact, this accomplishment is all you need ever contribute to the world! Glorious! -Lily

How lucky my daughter was to wear such a beautiful dress on her big debut. She is so lucky to have such a talented Madre and one proud Great Granddaddy. (And the picture def shows how very advanced she is. ;))
