Description

Here is a baptismal gown I made for a baby last spring.
I used the grandmother’s wedding dress for the outer and silk fabric for the lining.

It required a lot of time since much of the trim and inside lining required hand-stitching.

(Self-drafted pattern. I used a commercial pattern for the bonnet.)
