I made a baby dress today! I am pretty excited, as this is my first project I have made for Violet. James accused me of never sewing for Isaac, but that's not true. I just have never really sewn clothes for Isaac - but I did make him a rag quilt and a few cloth diapers - oh and I did a few tie onesies! So there, I have sewn for Isaac.
Anyway. I think Violet is going to get a lot more sewing attention from me, though, because it is just way too fun and easy to sew little baby dresses. I found a free pattern online, bought 1/2 a yard of beautiful fabric and went for it. Here are the results.
The bonnet is actually what started me on this sewing kick actually. I saw it on Pinterest, and I just couldn't resist. I bought the pattern, so I will probably make a few more just to really get my money's worth. Oh yeah, and because it's freaking adorable. Check out my hand embroidery, huh?
Yeah, the dress is actually a bit small on her - it's for newborn newborns (I can't believe she's a month old already!), so I will probably actually be giving this away to someone who is having a new baby girl soon. So, if that someone is you and you are reading this, please forgive that I let my own daughter wear it first. It's not really a hand-me-down if she only wears it once, right?
