The Infinity Christening Gown
The Infinity Christening Gown is the height of restrained elegance that can be used for a baby boy or girl. The serpentine Infinity symbol circles the hem 2 times and appears on the bodices and each set-in sleeve, worked in single featherstitch and trailing looped bullions. Groups of 3 hand stitched pintucks circle the skirt and appear on the bodice. Beautiful cotton lace insertion is center front on the bodice and circles the skirt with matching lace edging around the hem and sleeves. The pattern comes in sizes 0-3, 6-9 and 12 months. This unique 29" gown is made out of the finest Swiss cotton batiste, French cotton laces, is embroidered in white floche and buttons down the back for an easy on-and-off for baby. The neckline is finished with a bias band. Hand stitches covered in class are the Single Featherstitch, Trailing Looped Bullions and hand Pintucks. Machine techniques covered in class are lace insertion to fabric, lace edging to fabric, machine pinstitch (a machine hemstitch) and narrow French seams. The gown will be started in class and students will finish at home. This is a twelve-hour hand embroidery class but machines will be needed.
