Baby's First Daygown View One

I am going to post several versions of  "Baby's Frist Daygowns"

Beginning with View 1

View 1 is a Classic Daygown.

This version is exactly like the View 1 in the pattern and is the easiest  Daygown ever to make.

No Tucks, no  lace and an easy sleeve finish.  A darling daygown!
It features a casing for ribbon to gather up the long sleeves.
(you could slip elastic in the sleeve if you wished) 

The neck edge is finished with bias binding and narrow Swiss Edging is used along the edge of the front facings. 
 The embroidery is classic and simple. 
 Featherstitching and Pinwheel Posie flowers.

It looks cute under a little Baby Sacque too!

Fabric suggestions are Lawn, Satin Batiste, Swiss Flannel and Linen.  For fancy use a Swiss Batiste or Bearissima II.

1 yard fabric
1 1/4 yard of 1/8" or 1/4" swiss Edging (optional)
1 1/3 yard of narrow ribbon
5 Baby Buttons - 1/4" to 3/8" wide
