A Week of Sewing - Day 4

Baby's First Daygown in White Linen

With blue linen contrast for the hemstitched sleeve bands and the bias at the neck.

I decided a simple embroidery design between the top buttons gave me the look I wanted.

I love the trim going down one side!

And here is the embroidery design with all the fabric marker washed away.

Embroidery design is on page 27 of my book Jeannie B's Book of Heirloom Embroidery Designs and Stitches.

This is one of the classes I am teaching for SAGA in the fall.  
Hope you are coming!

I am not actually done yet.  I plan to Pinstitch the Bias at the neck for a really pretty look.

And it still needs to be hemmed.

It's looking absolutely lovely! The embroidery is simple, but sweet.
