Simple Baby Rose

Emma is one year here, wearing the 6 month size.  Alas, Emma Rose is 6 now!
This is my little Granddaughter Emma Rose.
Can you guess where I got the name Baby Rose for this pattern?

She is wearing View 3 Baby Dress from my Baby Rose Raglan Dresses pattern.

Notice the blue Featherstitching along the shoulder/sleeve seam.

Blue and White!  My favorite color combination.

It is a simple little baby dress and very easy to make.
And so old fashioned!!

Click on the photo to enlarge. 
 And you can see that I have worked Featherstitching with the Seed Stitch at the top front (before construction).

That is View 3!

I used the same blue embroidery floss at the hem to add a little color there.

In this picture the dress is a few years old.  But it's the same dress.

This picture was taken with more light.

It is one of my favorites.  Very, very old fashioned baby!

And both 3-6 Months and 6-12 Months is in the pattern.

"I know a baby, such a baby,
round blue eyes and cheeks of pink,
Such an elbow furrowed with dimples,
such a wrist where creases sink.
'Cuddle and love me, cuddle and love me,'
Crows the mouth of coral pink:
Oh, the bald head, and, oh, the sweet lips,
And, oh the sleepy eyes that wink!"
Christina Georgina rossetti (1830-1894)
