Thank you, Ladies!! My DGD loved it (even though purple/violet is her favorite color ). As to the embroidery colors--I didn't think I had any colors that actually matched the dress color, so used the closest I had. Turned out that once the embroidery was done, the color off the spool matched extremely well! I always know to unwind some thread to match my fabric for regular sewing, but hadn't done that for the embroidery thread . Another lesson learned .
Carol--Yes, this is the dress. You can find a photo of my solution here in the last post.
Oh! And a friend of my DIL, who has seen many of the dresses I've made for my DGD, wants me to make her daughter a Christmas dress--for money!! I'll be starting a new thread soon for advice on how to go about deciding on how much to charge her .
