I made this gown for my daughter right before she was born. I knew I wanted to create her blessing dress, but imagined I would sew one for her. I had never crocheted any article of clothing like this before, but with a little ambition, patience, and handy YouTube tutorials, I found myself holding my daughter in a piece I never imagined I could create.
I hope you try this gown out if you're tempted to have something like this for your baby's blessing or christening occasion. I was self taught with how to crochet bedspread thread, and I know you can be taught how to do this too!
I bought the pattern online which can be downloaded, but altered the sleeves and booties to look more modern.
