Can you believe that at any moment the next royal baby of Price William and Duchess Kate is due to arrive?! I am still in awe of how adorable Prince George is. In honor of this special arrival I will be sharing a few books that are royal baby worthy.
Create your own royal baby attire!
Sewing for a Royal Baby will let new mothers and grandmothers create a royal wardrobe for their new little one using the complete patterns and instructions provided with the book. These aren’t just any children’s garments, but elegant designs featuring heirloom sewing techniques. Some, like the Royal Christening Gown or a suit worn by a young Prince William, are inspired by actual royal attire, while others have been selected from past issues of Sew Beautiful magazine for their majestic style.
From bonnets and booties to breathtaking christening gowns and sweet toddler looks, Sewing for the Royal Baby lets the sewists create a wardrobe fit for a little prince or princess using a variety of machine and heirloom sewing techniques.
