1370 Christening Dress and Bonnet (2 preemie - 1 year)

Just look how exquisite this is, and imagine how angelically sweet the baby will appear wearing it. Modern versions of this very traditional kind of layette are rare. This design will appeal to modern knitters because of its beauty (of course), but also because it's not really hard; the lace pattern on bonnet and skirt is only 8 rows, with every alternate row purled. The skirt is gathered where the st st bodice begins; the bonnet is knit flat and seamed. A button loop diagram is provided. Sirdar wants you to know that they recommend a fabric underskirt for the dress, to maintain some baby decorum.
