Kathy keeps a Pinterest page updated with the new gowns that are turned in and there's lots of inspiration and ideas for gowns on that page. However, with so many new gowns being turned in, it seemed appropriate to showcase not only the gowns, but some of the clever ideas as well.
Janice has been busy and turned in this sweet mint green gown, smocked with pearl beads. The beads add so much.
Janice also turned in this long sleeved version, with pretty Swiss lace insertion at the hem.
This was another gown that Janice completed. So many pretty details on this gown - featherstitching on the bias, great use of tiny buttons in the smocking and the lace oval that was done at a recent workshop. Beautiful!
Janice has raised the bar on this sweet gown - look at the pretty bullion flowers covering the few stitches on the back where the snaps are sewn! So sweet!
Beth turned in a beautiful gown with beautiful details as well. The perfectly spaced tucks have been embellished with a running stitch in the blue to compliment the smocking.
Beth always has her signature sleeve treatment (shown on a previously submitted gown), which is so pretty!
This is another pretty gown by Beth that includes a pretty hand stitched cross at the hem.
Kathy turned in 2 gowns that have the magic madeira hem treatment that Barbara O'Brien taught at the latest Saturday workshop. The pin-stitching detail on the blue hem is so pretty!
Rebecca turned in a pretty gown that features beautiful featherstitching around the hem!
Kathy turned in 2 more gowns as well.
Kathy used the sleeve treatment shared by Sandra - bullion rose embroidered over tucked sleeve - for this gown.
We even had a guest at our meeting that had joined us several months ago for a workshop and she had 2 gowns to turn in - that's so special! Thank you Diane!
I do hope that I haven't missed any of our recently turned in gowns. There have been so many of them, which is wonderful! We plan to get a number of them sent off to one of our military hospitals soon. Hopefully this has inspired readers to try some new techniques and different ideas for their Wee Care gowns. This is such a wonderful service project to participate in and we've had outstanding participation from our members!
Thank you to all of our members that continue to produce the prettiest gowns for these families and babies!
