Saga 2016 - Fine Hemstitching on a Daygown

I love this Daygown with a contrast sleeve band attached with the Hand Hemstitch.
Last Thursday at the Saga Convention I was teaching this class.

The pattern is Baby's First Daygown.

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see where the Bias Neck Binding is stitched to the Daygown using the Pinstitch.  It's another pretty stitch with many applications.

In this Bonnet you can see the Hemstitching.  Click to enlarge.    The front band and also a tuck is attached with the Hemstitch.

The Bonnet is a reproduction of an antique. 
 There is a kit available so you can make it exactly like mine.  

The pattern is Miss Bufords Bonnet.

This Baby Gown is from another class.
The pattern is  Baby Layette.  But I don't have the class instructions as a kit. 

Lace has been attached to the yoke using the Hemstitch.

At the bottom of the Gown, there is Hemstitching which is pretty and old fashioned.

Hemstitching is something I love to do. 
 It's relaxing to stitch and beautiful to look at.

Keep the Needle Arts alive!
