White Wednesday - Baby in Pretty White Daygown

Make a Daygown from OFB Baby Layette pattern.
Beautiful Baby in White Daygown
Long sleeves and sweet embroidery.
And long enough to cover baby's little feet!
I am working on a new "take me home" daygown pattern.
I receive many calls wanting a smaller daygown that will fit better for going home from the hospital.
This little baby is 2 months old and weighs 10 lbs.
Still working on what designs to include.  
But love these sleeves!
How many daygowns did it take me to get this sleeve???
Quite a few.
It's not as easy as it looks!!

Today is White Wednesday where I show you lovely White garments!

Such a sweet gown, and adorable baby! How clever of you..it looks complicated to make. If you get a chance, you might want to stop by and see the vintage christening gown I've posted for my first White Wednesday.

So nice to visit with you...

Hi Jeannie, I'm enjoying your summer of daygowns and all the pretty babies, too! I can't wait for the sew-along tomorrow!

Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my blog, Jeannie! I think the gown may even be satin..it has a heavier feel and sheen. The other little garment is cotton, very fine and light, and is an undergament..a slip of sorts. The entire outfit then, was the cotton undergarment, the gown itself next, and the tiny vest on top of it all...with the bonnet of course. Quite formal, really, for postwar Britain. My mother said she left the bonnet off for the photographs so my little face would show!

It's nice to meet you...I'm sure I will be back again to see more of your lovely work!
