Heirloom Sewing part five

Welcome to part 5 of the Heirloom sewing entries in the judged contest at 


 This was one of the winners in the category. Isn't the detail on the inset darling? 
Love those dimensional flowers.


 A very sweet chiffon dress. Green and pink always looks so fresh!


This is really a precious bubble. Matching hat and booties. 


 I am not sure but this dress might be embroidered with color changing thread. 


 Are ya sittin' down? Really? A 15 year old made this garment.. not one stitch out of place. 
The bonnet is the crowning touch! Another winner in this category.


 I love this little crocheted ensemble!

Another winner in the category. Look at the piping detail! and the sweet embroidery along the hem.
The scale of the embroidery is in perfect proportion of the garment. So lovely.

Thanks for joining me today, I am humbled by your presence.
Do drop in Monday for some Monograms, embroidery and care tips!

Just seeing this perfectly made beautiful heirlooms reminds me of your articles in "Through the Needle" I have every issue and always pray I'll see more from you. Thank you for sharing these, beautiful Marlis!

Hi Marlis, Such truly beautful entries! I'm amazed at such talent. I used to be a "so so" semstress and now haven't sewn in years. I am expecting my first granddaughter and feel the urge to oil up my sewing machine! (not to mention my rusty skills!)

Marlis these are sweet as they can be. Absolutely beautiful workmanship, all the way around.

I used to make my daughters' clothes. Especially their summer clothing. I haven't sewn in years, though!
