Miss Dot Makes a Pretty Pink Baby Layette Daygown

Continuing my posts from Farmhouse Fabrics.
Miss Dot used Old Fashioned Baby Layette to make this stunning gown.

She used the  Daygown version that buttons in the back.  She stitched tucks on the front bodice and then arranged lace over the tucks and attached them with a machine Pinstitch.

And added lovely embroidery!

And a lacy hem.

But then, she fancied up the back of the daygown too!  With lace insertion along the back facing.

And notice the sleeves have lace too.
Sigh!  It's a beauty.

(Wish I had taken a close picture of the sleeve and matching slip.)
