Sweet & Simple & a giveaway!

Today, I am very honored to be featured at Seventh Smith. If you haven't been to Mandy's Blog, you should check it out. Every friday she offers some pretty neat Fabulous Friday Freebies! You can also find her on facebook
Mandy has a baby due to be born very soon - in fact, she's concerned that she might arrive a bit early, so I made her this sweet little preemie daygown.
The pattern I used is Anna & Andrew Baby Dress & Day Gowns by Bonnie Blue Patterns. The pattern features dress and day gowns with button closed backs for easy to dress styles. Five sleeve variations include heirloom techniques and are available short or long sleeved. A slip pattern and embroidery designs are also included. 
If you would like to order this pattern, please email me. The pattern is $12.00, plus shipping.
I am working on adding sewing supplies both to Brer Rabbit Designs & Southern StitchesThere are already some kits available at BRD, so check them out!
 I used white batiste fabric.
The back of the day gown buttons, making it 
easy to dress baby - soooo precious!
There are several sleeve variations.
I chose to make a short puffed sleeve with edging.
I used the same precious edging around the neck.
The front of the dress has machine shadow work embroidery,

It really does look like hand work!
The shadow work designs are combined from two Brer Rabbit Designs sets - Shadow Work Script Monogram and Shadow Work Bows & Bouquets. My machine shadow work designs are soooo easy to do and the results give that added hand-embroidered look to a garment. 
Please take time to visit Fabulous Friday Freebies and enter to win a $25 gift certificate that you can use at either Brer Rabbit Designs or Southern Stitches!

How sweet. I hope the baby won't come too early. If the baby stays a while & is too big to wear, it would be a beautiful piece for the nursery. A piece of art.

This is just gorgeous. I agree with Beckie this a work of art and would look lovely either framed or hanging in the nursery.
