Esther's Bishop and Bonnet Set

Today we have a charming bishop and bonnet set to share with you, made by reader Esther Grant of Keswick, Virginia. We think this little size 6 month pair is just the sweetest for spring or summer, with its ruffled sleeves and bonnet for a baby girl!
Esther tells us that the pattern and smocking are from "Bishop Trio" by Creative Keepsakes. The bonnet is Laura Ashley, McCall's M4424. Fabric is Imperial Micro Chex, Melon, and the trim on sleeves is edging cut from satin ribbon.
Thank you for sharing with us, Esther. Readers, don't forget to send us pictures of your creations to blog@sewbeautifulmag.com!
