Heirloom Baby!

049  050
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

  1. This is just gorgeous. I'm pulling out my Grandmother's Hope Chest book tonight and finding that pattern. Your bullions and featherstitching are so nicely done! Another treasure for your own hope chest.
