Rick-rack edging technique

Noticed this on the sleeve of the baby's dress - serge the rick-rack at the edge of the sleeve, then turn, press, and topstitch - hem, trim, and finish all at once!

New dress

The baby slept well this afternoon, so I cut out a new dress for her - the Baby Square Yoke so popular among Martha Pullen fans. The first one I made was nice, but huge on my tiny baby... so of course I cut this one a size larger (hey, don't want it outgrown too soon!), but I did change a few of the options to make it look a bit smaller.
