Baby's First Daygowns - View 2 Variation

I'm continuing my posts about Baby's First Daygown variations. I hope you enjoy them.

Very pretty in blue. 
Dress up for a Baby Boy.

For this version of View 2, I simply eliminated the Lace Edging at the Yoke.  It gives it a simpler, more tailored look.

I did add the lace edging to the hem.  I wanted that extra touch although you could eliminate the hem lace too.

Here is the same gown with the gathered lace at the  yoke.  I think it totally changed the look of the gown.

Notice, I used entredeux at the sleeve edge.

Blue and off white embroidery.

So many ways to make Daygowns!!

I love it.

This is really appealing. Did people make decorative braids for men's clothing? Did they use something like that on boy's clothes? Applique? Personally I would not choose a neck frill on a garment if the father preferred a tailored look, but something there certainly helps to give a nice finish. I also might give a severe kick in the shins to any father who wanted his baby son to look like a macho-whiskeydrinking-boxing-shooting version of himself. I feel the purpose of these traditional styles is to bring to the surface feelings of protectiveness, tenderness and care.

Beautiful. Love this gown. I haven't tried this one yet. May have to give it a go. I don't have any baby boys on the horizon, but it would be precious on a wee care gown as well.
