I just finished making a baby blessing dress with Texture Magic, and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
We have our first grand daughter due in November and I wanted to make an heirloom dress for this sweet little girl who will soon be joining our family.
I haven't sewn a dress in at least 20 years and I was a little apprehensive about making this one.
I picked a very basic pattern, McCalls M4865 with a simple yoke and sleeve.
It was so easy to construct this dress and it turned out looking like something out of an expensive boutique. I credit the result to Texture Magic that can make everything look like you've spent hours, when in reality, the process was fast.
I put Texture Magic on the yoke of the dress. Doesn't it look like I spent hours smocking?
I stitched the Texture Magic to the back of a piece of silk with 1/4" grids, and then applied steam.
Within seconds the fabric began to shrink, giving it that wonderful textured look.
I then cut out the yoke pieces,
and hand stitched some white beads in the folds.
I also used Texture Magic on the sleeve bands to add some pretty.
