For a baby in Dallas

This is the christening gown I restyled. I lengthened it, replaced the elastic in the sleeves with beading and ribbon, and replaced the buttons on the back. I was able to use a double wing needle to replicate the look of hemstitching so the work I added had a more cohesive look with what was already on the gown.
