Infant day ensemble

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love the embroidery on all of the pieces. All pieces are french seamed. The bodice of the jacke is self linedt. The pintucks add to the 'heirloom look', and the jacket and petticoat were hemmed with a 'picot edge'. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lots of love and patience!! Now to find the infant to model it.......................

What you will need

  • Swiss batiste
  • organza ribbon
  • embroidery floss
  • transfer paper and pencil

Q&A with dottyeb

mom2amarine asked:
This is beautiful and inspirational!! I wonder if I can get it finished by January when my new granddaughter will be born??? We shall see!!
dottyeb answered:
It really didn't take too long. And it is so very cute. I love retro patterns. They are so classic and comfortable. Thanks for your nice compliment.
newsong01 asked:
Can I order this pattern? I am learning to sew vintage clothing for children.
dottyeb answered:
This pattern is from 1947-48, I do have the original pattern my mother used. However, Simplicity re-printed it and it is number 2629 and came out in 2009. However, it is still available, as far as I know. They have several 'retro' pattern reprints available. This is one of them. If I can be of any further assistanc, please let me know. Good luck with your sewing!!
