Bullion Duck Daygown

Need a daygown for cool weather? This daygown is made from pattern #101 out of satin batiste and would be just as pretty made out of flannel. I used whipped stitched piping for the trim and a Bullion duck design on the yoke. If you have not quite mastered the Bullion stitch, this is a great project for beginners. These Bullion stitches are not complicated and it will not matter if one baby duck is slightly different from the others! All of the stitches can be found in the "Heirloom Embroidery Book." Bullion Ducks

Milliner Needle- size #3 or #5

DMC floss - 726, 209, 368, 722, 157

Two strands of floss for all Bullion stitches.

One strand of floss for all Straight and Lazy Daisy stitches.

One strand of floss, wrapped twice for the French Knot eyes.

Purple flowers - Bullion Loop Stitch

Stems, beaks, and feet - Straight Stitch

Leaves - Lazy Daisy Stitch

*The numbers indicate the number of wraps for each Bullion stitch.

*Bullion stitches with 11 wraps or more will need to be tacked in place with a straight stitch.
