Clara Clementine's Baby Dress

A friend at church recently had her first baby - a girl, and they named her Clara Clementine!
 My friend always dresses so nicely and I wanted to make her something special, so I made a  lovely silk dress from an adaptation of this vintage pattern. I know a silk baby dress sounds like a disaster...but it's so cute! I envision it worn with black tights and black leather shoes. I think it is about 3-6 month size...?
 I used a beautiful striped silk material and antique lace from my mother-in-law's doll making stash.
 The front has three tiny mother of pearl buttons, and the back has one button to close the neck opening.
(I definitely should have ironed it...oops)
