#108 Pattern of the Week

The pattern of the week is #108! The "Tucked Infant Gown", includes sizes preemie to 12 months, and may be smocked or gathered to the yoke. With two choices of collars or a simple neckband, and three different style sleeves, it is easy to make the gown suitable for a boy or a girl.

Made from peach cotton lawn, the gown pictured above is trimmed with lace and hand embroidery. The tucks on the yoke were eliminated, by using the yoke lining pattern for the yoke. The gown was featured in Sew Beautiful Magazine issue #104. The white dress in the picture is made from pattern #104.

The embroidery design for the gown is included in the magazine.

Featured in Sew Beautiful Magazine issue #112, this gown was made from gold tissue silk. Dusty blue, hand embroidery and smocking, gives this gown an antique look.

The collar is trimmed with blue silk piping and tiny gathered lace. The smocking design can be found in the magazine.

Because only basic construction techniques are required, this gown is great for those new to smocking construction.
