Baptism Gown - Bamboo Thread

Recommended Posts

Here's my precious 4 month old granddaughter in her baptism gown. I used the Offset shell pattern in the LA leaflet Christening Sets to Crochet by Kay Meadors. It took 5 balls of Aunt Lydia's white bamboo crochet thread size 10. I used a boye size 6/1.80 mm hook. I made the hat, too, but it was too small. The booties are from the Gourmet Crochet booklet Delilah Pearl Collection Thread Baby Shoes, Oopsie Daisy pattern. I didn't do the lacy edging. Same thread and hook. On both the dress and booties i used a purchased embellishment I got at Joanne's. The dress turned out so soft and "drapey".

Wow, she is just gorgeous and the gown came out beautiful! I was just wondering, where did you find the inserts to display the booties?

The inserts are just white tissue paper folded up.

 

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

Baby and gown are both wonderful. I love the drape of the bamboo thread for things like this.
