Two By Two

The baby tea is Sunday for my sister,Rae's, twin girls, Iris and Lily. This is what I've been up to. I have enjoyed sewing for these lil angels! I made two church dresses in 3mo out of dotted swiss batiste; crochet to entredeux around neck, sleeve, and hem; the embroidery has the initials out of bullion roses and bullion stems; and did I mention the pintucks. I made two pair of crochet Mary Janes with different edgings( just like the dresses) Iris has a picot edge and Lily has a scallop edge. I also made the girls each a pintucked batiste blanket with crochet to entredeux edges. Rae loved Maddie's milkmaid dress so I made her TWO! I will have better pics of everything after the tea, sorry but I have no light!

Oh such beautiful work & perfect for twins, same style, just with a different twist to each other. I never dress my twins the same, they are different people & personalities, but gees they look cute in the same dress, difference colours. Now the only thing that matches are their school uniforms. Keep up the divine work, it's just glorious. Love it, love Posie
