New Blue Homespun Gown

I completed the first of Asa's new gowns this past weekend. I did it in blue homespun basically because it's what I had on hand. I have a hard time getting him to lay anywhere without me and not cry so Katie took these pictures whilst I held him. He is such a Mama's boy!
I lengthened the bodice by an inch and widened it by 2 inches, so it now has a 21 inch long waistband. I don't *think* he'll outgrow this one in 3 weeks. I cut the front bodice on the bias to give it a little "interest" and lined it so it would lay neatly. I have yet to do the buttons and buttonholes. It looks huge just hanging there, almost like Abby could wear it. :-/

A final picture just because he looks like a little Sumo Wrestler. :-)


  1. He is just the cutest little man! Nothing better than a big healthy baby.
    And I love the gown. I need to start working on clothes for my little guy, he will be here before I know it.

  2. I really like the new gown, and especially lilke how you did the bodice on the bias. Very manly and you are right, more interesting than plain straight grain plaid. :)

    He's adorable!

  3. Tiff, what are you planning to sew? Modern things or historic things or both? Sewing for babies is addictive. :-)


  4. He's so pink and healthy looking! Awww!

    That dress is awesome. I love the bias cut -- it adds a lot to the overall design.

  5. Oh how handsome and healthy he is. I love the new gown.
