Lacy Christening Gown Completed!

The gown has been smocked and completly constructed! Stitch a little everyday has paid off. . . and now I'm off to finish the slip and matching bonnet. This dress has really turned out prettier than I expected. Always a nice surprise. I changed the design from the original pattern to incorporate a few more heirloom techniques. You will notice on the sleeves I have attached entredeux to gathered fabric, along with a few rows of lace insertion and beading. I love beading! Just add a pretty ribbon for finising touches!
