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?
