Mom came to us with her gown and requested not only a tuxedo type romper with long pants, but a separate vest, newsboy hat and 3 blankets, 1 for William and 1 for each of her future children. Once her gown was "deconstructed" there was enough fabric for all these things. Mom's skirt had an overlay of tulle & embroidered appliques. We carefully cut around these appliques and hand sewed them to the blankets and vest using silver embroidery thread. Also on the blankets we embroidered by machine a cross with an oval frame of white and silver.
