Baby Layette Daygown - per Suzette


Suzette made this Daygown using a design I did for my Old Fashioned Baby column I wrote for Creative Needle Magazine (March/April 1998).

It is just sweetness in a baby gown!!

The yoke featured tucks with lace insertion positioned between them.  On either side of the lace is Featherstitching and the embroidery is Pinwheel Posies.  Pinwheel Posies are an easy alternative to Bullion Roses and also can be considered a more tailored flower.

Suzette's work is lovely.
The sleeve is my favorite part of the gown. 
 It is a pretty little touch that I had seen in an old daygown.

I had given my Daygown away and forgot how very pretty it is.
I need to make another one, I think!

I don't think I've ever seen a pinwheel posie. Can you demonstrate or link to a tutorial?

Oh friend. You have such talent. I have never seen more refined designs. Truly beautiful.

Love, Rebecca

Yes please link or teach us pinwheel posies. I live in remote desert area of Calif and just can not seem to master buillion roses. Mastered & self taught myself silk ribbon roses. I learned all my heirloom sewing from videos & DVD from Martha Pullen. Now learning more on her MPTV and fabulous blogs like yours. Oh I can't wait!
