I stayed home from work with a fever and a snotty nose (nothing I'm sure, but everyone is swine-flu paranoid) and made this baptismal gown:


I made it for fun, I don't know any babies being Christened/Baptized anytime soon.  I might donate it to the church.  I got the fabric on Fabric Row in Philladelphia, off South.  It was so pretty, even though I had no need for it, I bought it.  My fabric stash is full of such fabrics, but I actually worked this one up right away.






Back

The fabric was so heavy and pretty, and I like the cross embroideries so well I left it fairly plain. The collar is basted on, barely, that's why it's crooked in these photos.  Some churches use their own so I wanted it to be removable.  I used an invisible zipper, which isn't traditional I know, but I am lazy and hate making buttonholes.  I still need ribbon for the cap.  

It's also massive.  Pattern size was for a 6 month old- it could fit a 18 month old baby.  Oh well, better to take it in with later on as well.  I left the waist free of anything so it can be fitted with a ribbon sash if need be.
