Small, very small, less than 1 pound. That is the size baby this gown will fit.
Cut from a soft pink batiste.
The lace is old, very old, it was my grandmother's, found in her sewing box wrapped in a bit of tissue.
Smocked with "Waterlilies" 12 ply silk thread using only 2 strands.
The pattern may be found here.
I read a post earlier today on Martha Broyles' blog. She too had created a tiny pink Wee Care gown. Please take a moment to read her post. I was so touched by one of the comments, I quote in part, "You have just made the ONLY gown this baby will ever wear."
That thought, makes this project so worthwhile....so very important, such an honor to be a small part of....well, so to speak an "Extra Tiny" part of.
Love to all,
