Bringing Home Baby Daygown



I like a traditional outfit for bringing the new baby home from the hospital.  A simple daygown with old fashioned tucks, delicate pima cotton fabric, and a touch of white embroidery and lace. 



In a perfect world, I would have a few daygowns packed away waiting for the next baby shower.  Also, a daygown can be loving passed on to the next little one to become the family's "Bringing Home Baby" gown.



And a nice little bonus, don't know if you will need a daygown for a boy or girl? The lace around the neckband can be stitched on by hand after the gown is completed.

What a beautiful little gown! Which pattern did you use? Are the tucks part of the pattern, or did you work them before cutting out the fronts? I was just thinking last night that I need to start on a girl outfit for baby #4, joining us in early August.

So beautiful as is all your work!! I had a Feltman's yellow day gown that I brought my babies home from the hospital in....Margaret came home in Daddy's daygown. The nurses could not believe that it was 32 years old and still looked perfect.
