Sweet Springtime Pattern
The newest in the Berryhill Heirlooms pattern line is a Madeira decorated confection, either a long Daygown (pictured) that is suitable for a Baby Dedication or Christening, or a short Day Dress with a matching slip and bonnet. It's the perfect outfit with beautiful Lamb and Butterfly embroideries invoking the freshness of a Spring morning for that special little baby. The dress has a lovely A-line "skirt" with a curved hem, puffed sleeves finished with bias bands, a bias bound neckline and buttons down the back. The Madeira appliques on the dress and bonnet are completed using a machine technique that is fully explained in the illustrated instructions. The slip is designed to perfectly match the lovely A-line shape of the dress skirt.
Berryhill Heirlooms now offers kits for this pattern in beautiful White and Robin's Egg Blue Swiss Nelona Cotton Batiste (K01), luscious Pale Pink and White Cotton Batiste (K02) and White Batiste and Medium Blue 1/16" Gingham (K03). Each kit comes with fabrics, ribbons, trims (if applicable), cotton floss and Mother of Pearl Buttons. Please click on "Kits" on the navigation bar to view the selections.
Of course, this pattern is perfect to use without the Madeira appliques: just design your own beautiful tucks, insertions and embroideries, or use a design from a favorite magazine.
There are three sizes in each pattern: 0-3, 6-9 and 12 months. The pattern comes with fully illustrated instruction sheets, full size pattern sheets, design sheets for all embroideries, stitch key, floss and fabric color suggestions along with color photographs on the front and back covers.
