Knitted Christening Gown, Pt. 3

"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born it's first laugh becomes a fairy." - J.M. Barrie

The knitted christening gown has been continuing by starts and stops, but is making good progress. I've finished the entire back panel (save for embroidering the last two golden daisies), washed and blocked.

The front panel is almost done. All that remains after finishing that is to knit the sleeves; wash, block and sew everything together; sew on buttons at the shoulders and lace around the hem and cuffs, and it's done - hopefully just in time for my friend's end-of-summer due date.

To be continued...
