White Wednesday Featuring French Acadian Christening Gown

Pretty hand hemstitching on the yoke.  
 French Acadian Christening Gown made by Susie!   
I am participating in "White Wednesday" with Faded Charm Cottage!
French Acadian Christening Gown.
Susie sent me pictures of this gown she made.  She took the French Hand Sewing  class I taught at a SAGA convention and this gown was the project.  Didn't she do a fabulous job?  It's a wonderful picture too, with the back lighting.

Susie's  Embroidery is so prettyl!  
Notice all the Featherstitching!! And most of it is the Antique Featherstitch.  Ooo Laa Laa!! I love it!!
