White Wednesday - White Embroidery on Baby Gown

Design using OFB pattern "Old Fashioned Baby Layette".
This gown was published in Sew Beautiful Magazine issue #89.
The fabric is Swiss Batiste.  It features White on White embroidery.
The lace insertions down the front lends princess-style detailing to the gown.  Tiny Featherstitching runs along the side of the lace.
The fabric was cut from behind the lace, giving it an airy look.
The lace insertion at the hem appears to have tiny fagoting on either side but it is all one piece of lace.
The embroidery design includes eyelets, buttonhole eyelet flowers, stem/outline stitch, tiny bullion buds and applique cord.

"The fashioning of wee garments for a baby is something dear to the heart of every woman in the world. Even those who do not know how to sew cannot help feeling the appeal of soft, daintily made little dresses and envying , no doubt, the more skillful fingers of their friends."
Excerpt from  woman's World Baby Trousseau Book, copyright 1926
