I know this is a horrible picture, and for that I apologize. I was having trouble with my lighting and then my computer wouldn't act right.
I finally finished my first french hand sewn day gown. I think I have been carrying this around for years, and I glad it is finally finished. You really can't tell from the picture but it is robins egg blue with ivory lace. I have a great husband that told me he doesn't mind our baby boy in lace which is an amazing step for most men. I think it helps that we went to a church for several years that all the children wore lace and fancy clothes. Kind of made it not seem so strange to him. This day gown just looks classic to me. My plan is to make two more day gowns one in white with a little lace for Easter and a blue linen one (different pattern) for spring. That is the plan for now. I do have the Easter one cut out so that is a start.
