Old and New Daygowns

This Daygown is a Raglan style with tiny pintucks and inserted lace.  Every stitch by hand.
A Friend was over recently to discuss a layette for her  new Grand babies. 
Above is the daygown she hand stitched for her own little baby boy, who will be the new father.

The fabric is a very fine batiste and the hemstitching is tiny and delicate.
She told me the happy parents are expecting twins!!

I love the raglan style. It's comfortable and seems to fit longer than daygowns with shoulders.
This sweet little daygown will probably be worn by her Grandson, just like his daddy.

She is over the moon excited about sewing for the new little ones and was very happy that she joined the "Sew A-long" I did using my pattern "Embroidered Raglan Daygowns". 

Because there are after all…... TWO of them.

She is going to make another one just like this one, so she will have one for each baby!
 And she has several other Daygowns all planned out to sew.  Mostly with tiny hints of pink on one and blue on the other.

I can't wait to see them.

This little daygown was worn by my Friend (the Grandmother) so Baby Girl has a sweet handmade family Daygown to wear too!!
