Dress your littlest rose in a very special gown. This dress has a full skirt with seed stitch edging, and cap sleeves with a filigree seed stitch body for a perfect fit. Buttons close the back neckline. It is the perfect gown for your tiny princess, and absolutely destined to become a family heirloom. It is perfectly paired with the seed stitch baby bonnet and heel ribbon booties, also available on my site. The pattern was created by Madame Segneri, a knitwear designer in Lyon, France, for the birth of my friend's daughter.
