I made these gowns for a friends baby shower they took alot of patience (the hand embroidery did anyhow) but I got them done in a weeks time! Please tell me what you think!

This is the newborn gown with matching booties and the letter "D" embroidered for Della:

yes, I made the gowns myself, I took the measurements from my daughters sleepers, the arm width, length, etc. and kind of just put a little bit of ideas together that I remembered  from past projects and I came up with these.

Those gowns are absolutely gorgeous! I wish I had a friend like you, lol. Did your friend adore them? I like the name Della too. I've never heard it before.

Beautiful! I love the timeless elegance.  I'm impressed at your patience and embroidery skills! I'd have thought it was done by machine. :-)
