Maggie...the. Babies. Looked. BEAUTIFUL. you are amazing.


I liked the way you made each dress unique with the white trim on one and the brown on the other! I always do something a little different for each of my twin granddaughters' dresses. Thank you for sharing these sweet dresses!



Yes, we all use lace for our fancy hems. This is the first time I used the header of the lace to do the gathering. UNVENTED: coming to an idea that others have discovered before you. Yep, that's me!


The metal hem gauge (Dritz EZY-HEM) is a life saver for fingers vs. hot iron.

I love adding lace at the hems of little garments! It was especially a great trick for these two. I really like the color combination of brown, pink and turquoise. Yummy!

Maggie, I have just begun a couture sewing class and the lace technique is in our workbook. I have always struggled with "the hem" and I think this is going to be a wonderful technique. Thank you for sharing this. Darby :)


Thanks for the tutorial! Would you please share what the metal plate/tool think is that is under your iron in the 4th picture from the top?
Thanks, Shelley
