I've been doing a LOT of baby sewing lately. Seems that my days (and sometimes nights) have been consumed with daygowns, christening gowns, sweet little bonnets and other baby stuff. This is just a sampling of some of the baby girl daygowns that I've finished lately. I love the basic front-button daygown - there are so many options for changing up the front. I love adding some simple pintucks and hand embroidery, but I also love the addition of lace insertion. Sleeves can be straight, have elastic added at the wrist, or (my personal favorite) smocked at the wrist. I always add an inverted center back pleat to give a little more fullness on this style of daygown.

I try to take photos of all of my work, but occasionally time doesn't allow. If you have a photo of your child in a garment I've made, I encourage you to share it on my Facebook page. I may at times use Facebook photos in a blog post, but I will never disclose names or personal information if I use your photo on my blog.
I am a full-time wife to Roy and mother to Emily, Sara and Anna. I love smocking and heirloom sewing and have enjoyed dressing my children and countless others over the last 18+ years. I would love the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind garment for your special little one.
