A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home. Like the shining lamp on the holy lamp stand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure - Sirach 26:13

Here is my baby girl wearing Butterick pattern 4385. This neckline looks a little low because I had read reviews that the band around the top gaped, so I decided to omit it. In retrospect, perhaps I should then have made the bodice higher. Fortunately, at the wedding a woman gave her a strand of fresh water pearls to wear and it wasn't as obvious. It also made her feel very special. When I have pictures of her at the wedding, I will post them. I made this out of beautiful dupion white silk that was a delight to work with.
