In looking at the bodice/skirt join, it looks like there is ribbon or lace tape behind the lace....is this how you achieved the pink shadow effect? Your dress is loaded with details, and the shadow lace is stunning!

We added the pleats to the pattern, which is actually an A-line. Completed the entire dress front embellishment before cutting out by the pattern. The lace was just applied on top of the dress then ribbon was run behind it.

Here is a close-up of the bodice. My machine pin-stitching turned out pretty good.

What a cute idea! I'm sure somewhere along the way that will be "borrowed" .

Well this was not look like a first effort at heirloom stitching. You should be very extremely proud. Your feather stitching is so nice, I've tried and tried and still strive for acceptable.

I love the touch of putting the ribbon behind the lace, such a lovely effect.

i dont think anything done with machine can compare to what she has done by hand it is far more stunning to look closely and relaise that a human hand has done this with care and patience. pachine just doesnt come close, howver perfect it might be. my mind is absolutely blown... this is the first picture ive even looked at on here nad im afraid to look at somone whos not a begginer... it is so far far far removed from my begginer attempts. so many glaxies away i coudl never catch up.

Beautiful job!! I'm glad you were able to find a class. One of the quilt shops in my area had an heirloom class years ago. That was the only one because there was not enough interest. I signed up and attended and was disappointed that there were no others. Only a very few of us signed up, and she conducted the class because she didn't want to disappoint those who did sign up. Northern Nevada is just not much of a mecca for heirloom sewing. However, when my daughter was young, she got a lot of "oohs" and "ahhs" for pretty much any handmades she wore (and she wore many, many).

Don't know why I never saw this. The dress is beautiful and you did a wonderful job. Have you done more? We'd love to see. I agree how lucky to go to a class with Jeannie. Good for you.

Vpenner, I think we all owe our dear Martha Pullen a big debt of thanks for saving
what we've come to know as 'heirloom sewing', from something seen only in museums
as antique garments.

30 years ago I was blessed to stumble into a little fabric shop offering heirloom sewing
classes, and fine hand embroidery. But the shop closed when the owner moved and
Peoria, Il. was once again void of such fine offerings. What a terrible shame it would
be for heirloom sewing to die out completely. Sure hope that never happens....it almost
did, before Martha took the world by storm!
