Lace Yoked - Baby's First Daygown

This is the Daygown I stitched for my class with The Memphis Area Smocking Guild.

It is an adaptation of View 2.  I used a flat Lace Edging instead of Insertion and gathered Lace Edging.
Made with my white Daygown Lawn.

The Daygown Lawn irons up so nice and fresh.

Isn't it pretty in my roses?
I made this Daygown in size Infant (the Newborn is included in the pattern). 

The Daygown looks great in my amazing Roses.
And I used the 3/4 length sleeve, which I really like!

By the time you get to this photograph, you realize that these pictures are no longer about my Daygown.  I am just taking pictures of my Roses and sticking the Daygown in my pictures!

So.... here's to my pretty Roses!

The Peggy Martin Rose (or Katrina Rose).
Looks like 7 Sisters, but it's not.  And no thorns either.

Have a Rosy day!
