This is the Christening Gown and bonnet I made for my Granddaughter. The Pattern is Fern Leaf with Irish Roses and is called Cameo Rose by Sharon Wilson. I purchased this pattern from Country Yarns in Pitkin, LA. http://www.countryyarns.com/pla001.htm. The thread used is Coats Opera 10 Color 500, white, for the dress and color 507, Cradle Pink, for the roses and can be found at http://www.pkcrochet.com/opera.html. This website is the only one I found that carries all of the Coats Opera colors.
