I used a decorative stitch for the hem on the sleeves too.
I just loved doing this, but I told my husband and my daughters, I will do this for my grandkids, but if anybody else wanted me to do one for them it would cost them That lace was a bit ornery sometime, but I worked out.
I dreamed this dress up in my mind, and then had to go out and find out how to do it. I'm pleased with the results.
Thanks again Ladies, for all your help in this. You all sure know how to ease the anxiety ;)
