Diane's Gown

The fabric for the gown and slip is Bearissima Swiss Batiste in white. The yoke is embellished with 4 (vertical) sections of tucked fabric separated by French insertion lace. Each tucked section has 3 small tucks.

The gown also has 6 (horizontal) rows of tucking separated by one row of the French insertion lace. A skirt ruffle edged with narrow French edging lace is attached to the bottom of the skirt. The neckline is finished with Swiss entredeux and French lace edging.

Thank You

Thank you Diane for sharing your beautiful baby gown with us.

This gorgeous gown was lovingly made by Diane S. of Kirksville, MO. for her granddaughter's Christening in March 2004.

The Slip

I love what Diane has done with the slip! Click on the links below the photo for close-ups of the slip. It is so pretty the way she added a touch of color to the slip with her embroidery!

The Pattern

You can use any high yoke baby gown baby to make a dress like this one.
