It's a baby's smock along the lines of a kimono. She gave some hint that it can be manipulated as the child grows, so by Jove, I did manipulate it as I have grown. I extended the basic shape based on my measurements and made a sloper. The original shape is a sort of cross, one side has the diagonal slash for the opening. (If I can be little mlle. smarty-pants, it's really more like a cheongsam than a kimono, but.. oh bother, no-one's wounded, right?)
I really wish I could get a photo of it. It's simply brilliant. It took a yard of 45' wide fabric and I used some left-over ivory charmeuse for the lining. (Ahh, it's like angel skin. I spent my sewing breaks just rubbing my dirty face on it. ^-^)
So I've got two more going. Both will be Valentine's gifts.
Oh, and the pillow-case to blouse turned out beautifully. It's lambkin soft with rose buttons dotting the bodice.
