Charm's First Nightie Part 1

This is the little daygown front and sleeves that I started a few weeks ago. The smocking and bullion embriodery are complete and this is awaiting construction. Charm is due at the end of May and the baby shower will be at the end of April. Charm will be her nickname and her given name is still undecided. (Third sweet daughter for my dear friend: "Three times the charm!")
The smocking plate is "Taylor Rae" by Peanut Butter-n-Jelly Kid's Designs. The roses are more full-blown than those on the plate. Since there would be only three of them I wanted them to really make a statement. Charm's mommy asked that I not make anything white (my favorite for babies) and really limit the lace. She also wants things that are easy-care so this is Imperial Batiste with the tiniest French lace I have in my stash.

This little trailing vine of flowers will go on the little bonnet brim. This will be it's only adornment (I am trying to make 'plain' but it is so hard for me!!!)
I have had to put this aside to make two outfits for customers but I hope to get back to it next week.


  1. Oh Karen...this is going to turn out absolutely beautiful despite the requests for "no lace" & trying to keep it simple. I love what you've done so far! I can't wait to see pictures of the completed outfit. You do such exquisite work, Honey!

    Have a Blessed Easter,

  2. your work is truly exquisite!!! Those roses are beautiful!!
