Fabric Selection: Swiss Cotton Batiste. This fabric is a staple in the heirloom world and perfect for your newborn baby.
Fabric colors: white, light pink, light blue, or yellow.
Collar Embellishments: insertion French lace combined with three appliqué diamond fabric shapes and finished off with pin-stitching.
Hem options: this gown can be closed with a ribbon casing at the bottom or a deep (3") hem can be hand-sewn instead.
This heirloom garment is a handsome way to display your newborn baby boy for portraits or as you take him home from the hospital. The collar features lace-insertion using high-quality French lace along with diamond fabric appliqués that have been accented with pinstitching. French seams join the sides of the gown. Hand-sewn snaps make this super easy to get on and off of your delicate newborn. The sleeves are finished with hand-sewing. Alternatively, French lace edging can finish off the sleeve edges if preferred. For the girl alternative, a puffy sleeve is available along with a feminine curved collar.
Delicate Baby Blue
Please note: this newborn-sized garment is still slightly too small for my smallest dress form. The collar will lay better on a newborn baby.
