Dora, my three months old granddaughter, was also baptized last Sunday, together with her brother Bela. I made a gown for her and used BWF-pattern No.132 from magazine 8/2007. For the Overall I did not make any embellishments and skipped the organza-front . Instead of ruffles on the edges of sleeves and legs I enclosed them with taffeta-bias tape.
Then I added an organza-apron made from my daughters wedding-gown-scarf and embellished with little white lacy flowers. For that I used the same pattern I took for “Baby Dora’s Kimono-Style Dress” ( http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/baby-dora-s-kimono-style-dress ).
It’s cold here in October, so I sewed a little bolero and a bonnet made from knitted cotton-velvet.
Cotton-Batiste for the overall, Organza for the apron, knitted cotton-velvet (Nickystoff)
