Baby Shower Gift



Sometime in March our family is going to be blessed with a great niece! This has been a long awaited bundle of joy.

Well, tomorrow is the first of many baby showers. I made this little dress from Jeannie Baumeister's The Old Fashion Baby Embroidered Raglan Daygown.



The fabric is Swiss Flannel from Martha Pullen and Company https://store.marthapullen.com/p-4943-cotton-swiss-flannel-white.aspx







I tweaked the embroidery design a little. Instead of lazy daisy I added bullion roses. It just fits the new mother's personality. The embroidery colors match the flower girl dresses I did for her wedding.



I still need to make a matching bonnet but that will have to wait till next week.

  1. What beautiful embroidery. I am envious. Maybe I just don't take the time to sit and work through it.

  2. How lovely, as always.

    I know I do need to take the time and work through this and smocking. Retirement will come someday....

  6. Hi! Where can I buy that cute dress? I want to purchase one for my new born baby. I've been into different online stores but I was not able to find a dress like that.
