Default Dedication/Christening Gown

I hand embroidered this Dedication Gown and Bonnet for this grandchild. Her siblings eventually worn the set too, when they were dedicated at church. I would come in from work and stitch every spare minute until my neck burned from keeping it bent over my work. This was featured in a Sew Beautiful magazine issue #80. The pattern is Heavenly Bliss by Petite Poche. My daughter wanted it stitched in blue just like in the magazine, so of course I did what mamas do-lol- I hope you like it.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

It is gorgeous and your GD is adorable.

When my daughter was born 55 years ago, the first time I saw her, she was wrapped in a blue blanket. When I asked why, I was told it was the color of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This was in a Catholic hospital and the nuns running it were of that order.
