OFB Smocked Daygown Part 8: A bit of progress

I added the sleeves to my daygown. It was quite challenging for me to have to sew something as tiny as infant-sized sleeves. All I can say is, heirloom sewing is vastly different from quilting.

I am glad that the daygown is looking more like a daygown, and less like a… like a… like a…. muscle shirt! ;)

Now, I am supposed to stitch this tiny tiny lace by hand (about 1/4″ wide) to the collar before I can attach the collar to the daygown. I am usually not afraid of handwork, but I have to say this part does overwhelms me a bit. Nonetheless I am going to do it as soon as I get a breather from my quilting deadlines:

Missy, who is also into heirloom sewing, graciously awarded me (thanks, Missy!):

  1. Your gown is coming out beautifully! I saw Jeannie B. last week. Did not get a chance to talk to her. Did not take any of her classes and the week was soooooo busy….

    I have got to find a friend’s email address and send it to you. She lives in Springville? Springvaile? She drives 1-1.5 hours away to a SAGA guild in AK. I thought she was in LR. She said “Noooooo, that is 3-4 hours from me….” She is a fine artisian. Had several entries in the Design show and placed! She is looking forward to hearing from you. I think she should be getting home today or tomorrow.

    Congrats on the award!!!

  2. Hello! I am so pleased to see the little daygown that I designed looking so pretty!! It is always a treat to see my patterns made up. And, I really like that lacey hem you put on the gown. How pretty!
