Peachy Pink, Pink, Pink

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope your week is going well for you so far.

I completed the embroidery on the baby daygown slip. I realized after the fact that using an entredeux would have probably been better before attaching the lace:

Once the embroidery was completed, I felt compelled to finish constructing the daygown. The ensemble is made of a peachy pinkish Imperial Batiste. The daygown pattern is from Ginger Snaps Designs, and the slip pattern is from Old Fashioned Baby:

I opted to just do geometric smocking on this daygown to give it a touch of simplicity:

I just think smocked sleeves are the sweetest things, especially on babies:

Thanks for stopping by. I will catch with you tomorrow.

  1. Wendy, you will love the smocked sleeves. They will last longer and ‘grow’ better than gathered/banded sleeves or elastic sleeves. Now don’t get me wrong, my dd does not have fat arms, she is a skinny minnie! But she tends to be muscled. Things get tight on her fast. (Even store bought.) It takes only a few more minutes to smock a sleeve, adds and extra touch, longer wear (especially if you do European length and growth tucks) and looks beautiful!

    Beautiful job. Is that Ballet Pink?

  2. Oh, how beautiful! Do you realize how good you are? That’s silly, you probably do! :) but I’m just amazed at your work!
    Be a sweetie,

  4. I am looking for the smocking plate that you used for this dress. I am going to be a grandmother in August and have just started smocking. I would love to make this dress for the baby dedication service. Can you help me?
