Baby Blessing Gown

First Blessing Gown Jean has made!!

Jean was kind enough to send me this picture of the first Blessing Gown she has made.  It is made from Linen using Baby Layette pattern and she made it for her niece.  

Baby's mom wanted a simple but pretty  gown for the Blessing. 
Sometimes a  Church will  have a dedication ceremony or a Blessing ceremony and the Mom will want a gown that is pretty but not too elaborate.  The Baby Layette Daygown that Jean used will be plenty long enough to cover the tiny feet.
She also used the slip from Baby Layette but took the embroidery design from Best Embroidered Baby Clothes One.  She made a matching Bonnet too!

She did a lovely job!

Jesus said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them..."  And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
Mark 10:14,16

So sweet for a wee one! Thank you to Jean and you for sharing.

Beautiful little gown, Jean!
Did you embroider something on the hem of the slip? or is it a fancy hem?

Jean said...

Thanks for posting my daygown, Jeannie! :)

Karen, the slip hem is just rolled and whipped, so all the fancy part is just what you see.
