Again, adding to my Granadma’s Hope Chest, an heirloom baby gown. This sweet gown is from Grandmother’s Hope Chest by Martha Pullen.
Sewn from crème color Victorian Batiste, this gown was a pleasure to stitch. With pin tucks covering the entire bodice, they are embellished with old fashioned double feather stitch and feature a bullion rose at the end of each one. At the center is a hand embroidered monogram … the letter ‘H’, my sons’ last name.
Just waiting for a baby to wear this special day gown!
Enjoy! Merry Gay
