a little dress

Indigo's great-grandmother gifted her a beautiful little dress for her first birthday. There was just one catch- the dress came in the form of fabric and one very cute pattern. Oh my!

Although I first sat down in front of a sewing machine two years ago, I haven't had much practice since then, and I have certainly never used a pattern (unless you count T-shirt pants). So this was a big deal and just a wee bit scary. One naptime and a very late night later and this little dress finally became a reality.

Just don't look too closely. It looks much more professional from afar.

Next on the list: the matching bloomers... and matching hat... and a whole lot of Christmas presents...

Beautiful job! I have made a few of those dresses, they are so versatile, once they grow they can be worn as little tops. Love the fabric!

Oh so sweet! I've been meaning to give this style a go for gifts - maybe I'll get to it in time for christmas too.

Ack! SO, so sweet - the fabric, the dress, and its model. And I know what you mean about the garment looking "more professional" from afar. I have very little sewing experience and all of the garments I produce look far better from a distance. But still, it is ever so satisfying to MAKE the littles' clothing. Or toys. Or blankets. Or pillowcases. Or...
