Uncut Gorgeous Vintage Simplicity Pattern 2878 Infant Christening Gown-coat-etc :
Now is theperfect time to sew!!ISew it for that special expected arrival and for future generations.
This is a beautiful Simplicity pattern for an infant's christening gown,
with coat, cap, blanket, and pillow.The size is for a newborn.
The pattern was printed in 1990 and is out of print.
The original price was $4.50 (how times change!).This is just a stunning long christening gown with short gathered sleeves,
a very long, full skirt that has gorgeous deep tucks at the bottom
above a wide lace-trimmed ruffle.There is also a lovely coat to cover baby that has long sleeves.
The other pieces will make a cap for baby's head, a blanket and a pillow.
The pattern includes transfers for embroidering on the blanket, pillow, and coat (and the gown, if you wanted).
The transfers are shown in the last photo (very hard to photograph).The possibilities are endless for this pattern....it could, of course, be mademuch plainer or trimmed with a variety of laces and embroidery, as could the blanket (which has an underlining) and the pillow. Just a scrumptious pattern!!
Alert! I have 7 big bins of vintage lace for trimming
to be listed as soon as I can get to it.
The pattern is also printed in French.
Suggested fabrics are batiste, lawn, handkerchief linen, organza, challis,
china silk, crepe de chine, satin back crepe, gauze and cottons.
Flannelette and lamb's wool for the blanket underlining. Not suitable for obvious diagonals, plaids, or stripes.
Use nap yardages and layouts for napped fabrics or one-way design fabrics.The condition is brand new, uncut.
Pattern/instructions were removed from envelope for
photographing and then replaced with factory folds intact.
The envelope is also remarkably pristine, with only a little curling to the corners.Hopefully, the printing in the photos will be legible,but if not, please contact me for any measurements or other information needed.
