I got the dress. It is absolutely beautiful! I tried it on Ella and it fits perfectly. I can't wait to photograph her in it. I'll plan on emailing you some of the pictures. Thank you so much for your lovely work. It is just what I was looking for.

To Whom It May Concern:
When I first was exposed to the fine French handsewing of Peaches Barnes I was extremely impressed. She is a true artisan who has mastered this fine and delicate art. I was eager to display her creations in VERANDA.

Dear Peaches,
It was so good to talk with you today. I am really glad that I was able to locate you. This is so exciting. Your dresses are so beautiful! I forwarded your name and address on to the lady and told her you would love to hear from her; her name is Robin Brooks and she is from Edmond, OK. As soon as I receive your pack I will send the data along to her.

I look forward to receiving your pack. I'll check your copies against our archives and if I have copies of the portraits I'll send you photos of them. I am sure we can work together and I will be happy to refer our clients and other interested parties to you.

Thank you again for your help and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Sincerely yours,
Judith Schumacher
Director of Public Relations

Hi Peaches,
I am back home now and settled back into my daily routine…after a wonderful birthday week with my grandparents in Memphis. Boy were we busy!

We had a real-fun birthday party and I got lots of presents. One present was a beautiful dress made by you. Everyone oohed and aahed over it, then my mom put it on me and everyone told me that I looked like a doll. It sure was fun getting to play in my new dress, before we went to the photographer the next day!

The photographer was fun. He gave me all kind of toys to play with…but, he didn't want me to smile! Believe you me, I was happy to oblige him! You see, I was trying to take a nap…and they woke me up just to have my picture made!

Hope you like the picture I'm sending you. It was one of the easiest ones that he took, and he really took a lot! This one really shows my pretty birthday dress!

Thank you for making my birthday dress!

Hi again Peaches. Thought it would be fun to write you a note, as if I were Caroline! The dress is beautiful and she really did look like a little doll. It was a little loose on her, but, the fullness in the design covered it beautifully!

It was a perfect gift from God-parents that think this little girl is quite special!

Again, many, many thanks for your speedy and beautiful work.

Happy holidays to you and your family!

The dress is beautiful! I especially like the bonnet. I will get you a picture when we get one.

Thank you so much for making the gown. I'm so glad I got to know you. Looking forward to more baby dresses.

Dear Peaches,
The gowns are absolutely gorgeous! Makes me wish we were having twins (well maybe not!)

Thanks for your prompt response.

All the best,
Sarah Mansour

Oh Peaches! We got the dress and it is even more divine than I could have imagined!!! I adore it and so does Pearce!!! It got here Friday morning and Friday afternoon the artist said she was coming over because we were supposed to have rain on Saturday so she was going to come early since she was already here (all the way from Conneticut.)! Thank goodness your dress got here when it did! It fits perfectly and is as soft as a cloud! Thank you so much for your beautiful work... I can't wait to get another dress from you in the future!!
