Baby Day Gown Finished.....



This past week I delivered this sweet little day gown to a co-worker of Wayne's. She has a precious 4 week old grand daughter and I designed this day gown with this new baby in mind. The fabric is 100% cotton Japanese Lawn and it feels so soft and smooth. After I drafted the pattern I incorporated all my favorite elements: pintucks, embroidery, and crocheted lace.



I also thought the back could use some interest and color, so I added bullion rosebuds to the three buttons.


I crocheted an edging on the sleeves.



And I made a very basic diaper cover to go with the day gown. I did keep the pattern I drafted to make this day gown, and I also wrote down specifics so I can re-create it if the urge hits. I know I always say this...but I really think this may be my favorite baby item I've made yet.

It is so beautiful and sweet. I am really blown away, though, by your tiny crocheted edging! You really did that all by hand?! So teeny tiny and perfect! I bet she was thrilled with this gift.

This little gown is just so lovely! I adore white on babies and this is so delicate with the hand embroidery and the crochet edging. Very inspiring!

I forgot to say your gown is exquisite! Everything from the embroidered buttons to the precious crochet edging. The design is different from most baby gowns and that makes it even more special!
