Tuesday Time to Tackle: Baby Blessing Dress

I love the look of heirloom blessing dresses, but know myself well enough to realize the amount of time I could spend trying to sew from a complicated pattern. 

Instead, I bought beautiful fabric, and used Simplicity pattern number 2457 to make this:

The original pattern called for rosettes and more ribbon, but I thought that might be too much on an already-busy fabric.  I still need to put buttons or hooks on the back, but other than that, I am done. 

Thanks for a sewing machine, beautiful fabric, and a pattern called "Simplicity."

Thanks for making this a conversation. I love to hear your comments!
