Wrap your baby in soft, elegant tradition on his or her special day! This Baptism gown has a full long skirt and cap sleeves with seed stitch edging, and a filigree seed stitch body for a perfect fit. Buttons close the back neckline. It is the perfect gown for your tiny prince or princess, and absolutely destined to become a family heirloom. It is perfectly paired with the Traditional Baby Bonnet, also available on my site. The pattern was created by Madame Segneri, a knitwear designer in Lyon, France, for the Baptism of her twin daughter, Anglique, seen in the photos at age 10 and a half months.
A 10 cm (4 inch) square, knit in stockinette stitch is 17 stitches and 28 rows.
