Fan Fav: Elmo Party Dress

The weather is fluctuating so drastically here in south Mississippi that it went from 73 degrees yesterday to 36 degrees currently. I had to put another quilt back on the bed and bust out the warm flannels for the little papoose. Now we're all nice and toasty again and staying mostly indoors. It's the perfect excuse to work on my sewing to-do list. I managed to finish one of the three lace and satin flower girl dresses this past weekend, and since the wedding is at the end of the month, I'm down to the wire on getting them all completed.
I'm finally getting around to sharing these pictures. A mom contacted me after seeing the original Elmo Party Dress somewhere on the Internet and used her detective skills to track me down. She liked it so much that she wanted one like it for her little papoose's first birthday. I was so excited and amazed that she went through all that trouble to find me. I had to use a different stripe fabric because the original was a vintage scrap I used all up. I think it turned out wonderfully though, and the sweet lace she added only adds to the charm of this dress!
