First I wanted to say thank you, faithful readers, for all of the comments, prayers and emails regarding our baby mommy. She came home from the hospital yesterday. It was a very long 10 days. She is thrilled to be back home with her beautiful baby and we are all glad she is. She is feeling good and working towards a full recovery. We are looking for the re-start button to getting life back to normal. As I told my daughter this morning, we have to find out what normal is now.
Getting hungry, hurry up Mimi!
But this precious gift will help us all do that. She is wearing a gown her Mimi made, but her mommy smocked. She did a great job! It is a simple daygown of Imperial batiste smocked in ecru with ecru lace at the neck and sleeves.
I used Baby Daygowns, Book IV by Ginger Snaps Designs to make the gown. Mommy smocked it using the plate provided in the pattern.
And here is a serene shot with a full tummy. If you want to make a quick gift that is smocked, this gown is perfect. It can be preconstructed as I did and smocked in a couple of evenings. It buttons down the back to make it easy to dress and undress baby.
Hopefully I can get back into the sewing room this week. Up first, laundry.
