I Want to Copy This Vintage Daygown

My taste in baby clothes mostly run  simple.

I love this Daygown!
There isn't much to it, really. A few gathers, a little lace.

It has a small collar and the only color on the Daygown is tiny rosebuds on the collar and sleeves.  They are pink with green leaves.  I think my Old Fashioned Baby Layette will be the perfect pattern for it.

It is on my "I want to make it" list.

I like the front gathers under the collar. You don't usually see gathers with a collar. Very sweet.

This is unusual, and I'm sure your version will be lovely. But you might want to add some feather stitching. :)
