The Continental Bib from the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood book is just the elegant style baby needs to protect a precious gown worn beneath. Based on an antique from her vintage collection, Laura Jenkins Thompson’s bib is similar in feel and hails from the same era. We’ve provided both bib patterns with this e-pattern along with a bonus butterfly machine shadow-stitch embroidery download, a hand-embroidery bluebird template, and the floral spray template from the Continental design. The instructions for making Laura’s bib, which is self-lined and finished around the edge with straight lace and pin stitching, and directions for stitching out the butterfly embroidery designs are detailed. This pattern was excerpted from the book Sewing for a Royal Baby. Download this e-pattern instantly and start sewing this project today!
This e-pattern also includes a bonus PDF, excerpted from Sewing for a Royal Baby, featuring general instructions for some of our favorite techniques.
