Pretty Blue Daygown.

Fairy Rose from my Garden.
I finished my blue daygown.

Actually, it will have gathered lace around the lace yoke.  But I wanted to show you before I stitched it on.

I like the simple look with just the lace insertion.  Very Boy, I think!

And love the sleeves.

With a pleat in the back.  And a Fairy Rosebud stitched on the pleat.

Will show you how it looks with gathered lace next!  Gotta go stitch it.

The Fairy Rose
Sprays of tiny, double, rose pink flowers against petite, dark green  leaves combine to make "The Fairy" a tidy , handsome, and useful shrub.  Antique Rose circa 1932,  disease resistance is better than that of most roses in its class.
from Antique Roses For The South by William C. Welch

Anyone can grow this rose!!  It is like a thorn bush with flowers!
