I never was good at keeping secrets -------- so here is my stitching for my first grandaughter , due in a couple of weeks. The dress is for 6 months, but I did love the style and the embroidery was my idea trying out my new
Madeira threads. The pattern is an out of print 'Butterick' design . I lined the bodice and skirt in white polycotton as the gingham was very fine.
The bootees' pattern is from an old copy of 'Sewing World' magazine that a friend gave me. They don't look even in the photo but being a 'squashy' design they have a will of their own.I lined them with a brushed cotton 'teddy' print and trimmed with Broderie Anglaise in pink.
Hope you like them.
