Judy's Winter Christening Robe

We are in awe! Check out this gorgeous version of Kathy's Winter Christening Robe made and sent to us by reader Judy Italiano of Collie, Western Australia. Judy made this gown (pictured above) for her soon-to-arrive grandbaby, who is due in August of this year. Because it is rather hot in Australia, she used silk dupioni for the robe instead of Swiss flannel. She also chose to create a gathered ribbon trim instead of using ruched ribbon, which turned out beautifully. Judy says she is "so proud and pleased with the result," and she should be! The finished gown is a true masterpiece.

Sew Beautiful editor Kathy Barnard designed the original Winter Christening Robe, which was featured in issue #127 (November/December 2009). The gown pattern is offered free on the pullout centerfold of that issue. Back issues and all the supplies needed for this project are available from our webstore.
