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.
