Finished! Baby Dress

I made my first ever dress for my first ever baby, and I hope to make many more, er, dresses that is. I was intimidated by making clothing of any kind, always have been, maybe it has something to do with the fact that they have to fit properly, and I am more of a wing-it type sewer. It turned out to be much easier than I thought, so that makes me happy and hopeful that I can make more for her to wear this summer.

I used this pattern (purchased on etsy of course) it’s a cute pattern and the instructions are very clear. I ended up making a few changes which limit the reversible aspect of the dress but that’s just how I roll (sorry, I hate when people say that, I don’t know what came over me) Anyway, the changes:

1. I used some awesome lime green vintage buttons instead of snaps

2. added on the little pocket and ruffle detail

3. I did a rolled hem instead of using bias tape around the botom.

Isn’t it adorable?

    I love this dress. My niece is going to be induced tomorrow with her first baby, who is a girl. I’m going to try to make a similar dress for her baby for the summer. Great job.
