The Christening Collection
by Kathy Harrison

Larger hoop owners can now stitch decorated christening gown & baby dress pieces, including the pattern cutting lines, in the hoop!  Choose one of the 6 complete gown themes included, or start with the blank pattern pieces and design your own.  Use your copy, paste, mirror & rotate functions to turn these 231 delicate designs into an infinite number of your own creations.  Many are included in both white on white and in colors, making them perfect for any delicate sewing project.  Small religious symbols are included.  The front & back yoke, collar & straight sleeve pattern pieces provided are for a 11-13 pound baby.  If you need a slightly larger size, delete just the pattern piece from each file and stitch only the embellishment portion, then lay your own pattern over the embroidery and cut out in the traditional way.  Included are several embellished one-piece bodices ready to stitch, with matching skirt designs.  These can be used for preemies or small dolls.  8 machine formats are included:  art, jef, pes, sew, xxx, hus, pcs, exp  Photos of each gown are included on CD.
