Tiana Sketch Baby Dress

It's been a while since I've embroidered on an article of clothing.  I'm still not that comfortable with it as I have difficulty placing clothes on my hoop.  But when it comes to doing these little baby dresses it's not so bad since I can just place the stitching at the bottom of the dress.

And so today I share with you the last of the baby dresses I have on hand.  I had purchased several of these cap sleeve dresses in different sizes, and colors, from Hobby Lobby.   The smaller ones up to about 6 or 9 months were perfect, but I discovered that the one year dresses had an issue with the opening for the head.  I had one I made for my granddaughter that I could not get to fit over her head.  To remedy that I had to cut a slit and create a button hole.  Needless to say, I reached out to corporate about the issue and they said they'd look into it.  Either way I won't be buying anymore of the larger sized dresses.  Too risky.  The shirts they sell though have been wonderful and I will be working with more of those in the near future.

For this dress I found this great sketch of Tiana over at Thanks for the Adventure.  Since I had just made a greeting card with Tiana I thought I'd make a little dress too.  I have always loved how beautifully these sketches stitch out and this one was no exception.

It really makes the dress stand out more when you add a cute Character.... It's adorable!! Have you thought about trying the designs on some onesies? Would they work on your machine??
I bet they would sell like crazy with cute Characters on them... :)
