christening gown and hat

Project Description

What are you most proud of? designing and putting the pattern together. I also used white flannel for inside lining of baby hat for warmth. What advice would you give someone starting this project? measure the baby before cutting out size. Sizes are not always accurate. Measure width from back shoulder to shoulder. neck size, chest size. length of gown desired. do a little at a time. take breaks. Sometimes you're not sure what the next step is. Sleep on it. The next day, it clicked what I needed to do.

What you will need

  • i used broadcloth. The material was simple and reasonable in price. Lace from Hobby Lobby.

infamousmare asked:
This lovely gown is breathtaking! Did you use a pattern or did you draft one yourself?
lucillei1300777 answered:
Partly used a pattern for the length and shape of the gown. The pin tucks were my design. I just added 1/4 inch more on the bodice for each pin tuck. The yoke was from the pattern.
