Heirloom, Anyone?


I was thrilled to have the opportunity to make this little heirloom daygown for a client for Easter!  I just LOVE heirloom sewing, with it's fine Swiss cotton fabrics, ecru lace edgings, beadings, entredeux . . .

 
This daygown was made for a little boy . . . so I used french lace with a tiny dot pattern, and featherstitched between the pintucks at the bodice . . .


I love using beading at the wrists so that the sleeves can be pulled up with silk satin ribbons to  stay up on the arms . . .

This item is also listed on website as a boy option for heirloom.  Have a great day!
