Handsewn Baby Dress

My new Granddaughter is 6 Months old and sitting up very nicely.

She is wearing the white Baby Dress that I made.  Every stitch by hand, buttonholes included.  It was such a pleasure to stitch and I love, love, love it on her.

It's made from a soft Swiss Batiste.
The dresses really are softer when stitched by hand.  That is because each seam has only one row of stitches, not the double stitching of a sewing machine (meaning the bobbin and the top stitch).

This is one of my favorite things she wears. 
I want to get all the wear I can out of it.  It's too long for her to crawl in but good for playing.  

I used my pattern  Old Fashioned Baby Layette.  The button in the back version.  I taught a class using this  design. When I get a chance I will put a kit together with the modifications and instructions.

Of course it can be made by machine, with hand embellishments.

She just melts my heart!!!
