Cora Belle received these adorable hand me downs but they all had monograms across the front. I slowly removed all of the monograms but it left the material weak in some places, so I put some fun patches on to cover the spots. The dress has an embroidered patch I bought some time ago, I just zig-zagged around the edge and once across the center. The other two I ironed on 2 sided interfacing onto material, cut out the shape and ironed it onto the front. I then zig-zagged around the edges. I hope these clothes will be used many times.
