Wee Care Gowns

Wee Care is such a special privilege.  You have the opportunity to touch another's life.  I can't stitch one without praying for the family that will receive it.  

My local SAGA group constructs these gowns in an assembly line fashion a few times a year.  
A whole room of cutters, sewers, pleaters and ironists.  
Lots of noise and lots of work.

I think our guild has adapted their own version of the SAGA gown, upon request from our local hospitals.  I have found the little booklets from Debbie Glenn are wonderful for smocking these gowns.  These plate are from Smocked Minatures VI.

Trying to take pictures of white Wee Care Gowns is almost impossible.  
The color just never comes out right, so just think about white batiste and simple smocking.
