This is supposed to fit about a 3lb baby. It is 12" long and the neck is 7".
The fabric is the finest (thinnest) Swiss batiste I've ever seen. I don't know the brand because it was part of a lot of Swiss batiste scraps I got on ebay. There was just enough white to make this tiny gown.
The lace is vintage ecru I had on hand. I don't remember where it came from.
I took 2 pictures of the embroidery because it is very hard to see. It is a long shadow work bow with flowers from Applique for Kids.
Their shadow work designs are amazing!!
I used ecru DMC 80wt cotton with Madeira 80 cotona in the bobbin. I like to do this because it is more in keeping with the heirloom look and is very soft, front and back. The white shadow is the wash away stabilizer I haven't washed out yet.
The back opens all the way down. It will have tiny buttons or snaps.
I feel like the front needs something - any suggestions?
