French Handsewers Saga Guild Finishes Daygown Program

Sweet and Simple Daygown made from Fairy Fabric.
We finished our Daygown Program (and began our Bonnet series).

A few ladies are very enthusiastic and finished matching Bonnets already!

Suzette pin stitched the edge of the Bonnet Tie.

The tie was folded over and sewn to the Bonnet, then a Bullion was stitched over the thread.
And added a very cute touch where the tie is attached to the Bonnet.

It was so much fun to see all the different Daygowns.

Another matching Bonnet already completed!

Everyone had their own style.

So each Daygown looked different, even though we all used the same pattern.

Bullion Roses between the Buttons.

Baby Daygowns are the perfect garment for babies. They are the most comfortable thing a baby can wear and very practical for changing all those diapers!

 As a friend of mine told her son when he balked at putting his newborn son in a Daygown....."He is coming home from the hospital with a bloody naval and gauze around his newly performed circumcision.....would YOU want to be wearing bluejeans?"

She had no argument after that blunt statement!

Beautiful daygowns but the Publis Service Announcement :) is the best. I am filing that little nugget away for reluctant dads. So far I have been lucky, we will see with this next one. Tell your friend, thank you!

Will tell her. She certainly did put it in perspective.

Love the argument for the day gown. Dads just don't realize that an infant son wearing something pretty won't affect his upbringing in a negative way. If anything, it reinforces his mama's love! Beautiful day gowns from a beautiful sewing group.
