Melanie Thread Gown





Good morning!

Today's pattern is for a small and delicate thread gown. This gown will fit roughly 18-20 weeks gestation, and is approx 9.5cm wide at chest (row under sleeves) 21.5cm long from centre neckline to bottom hem. It is really quick and easy to make too which is always a plus.
I am so happy with how the outfits have been coming along this year and I hope everyone has been enjoying them. As always, don't forget to check out my Ravelry Page and share some photos of your finished items with me.

  1. I have made two of these already! Congratulations on designing a thread project I have actually finished! Usually working with thread I feel like I'm going blind because it's so small. My favorite was a variegated thread in purples and greens in a slightly thicker size 5 thread instead of 10. I need to get a Ravelry account and post pictures.
