I was honored to receive an order to make this Thread Christening Gown Ensemble for a sweet baby girl.
Today I was delighted to hear that the package arrived safely home and my sweet buyer was very happy. She was looking on Etsy for an heirloom keepsake for her new granddaughter.
There are over 66,000 stitches in the dress and the underskirt is completely handsewn in french batiste cotton. This is one of two patterns I have, both are from the 1950's.
I am very grateful that I learned to crochet as a young girl, by a very dear family friend, June. She took the time to teach me the basic stitches. She could crochet anything~ beautiful afghans, pillows and I just was fascinated in watching her hands move while creating so many wonderful things with a hook and some yarn.
One stitch at a time....Thank you sweet June. I hope you are smiling...
