Sew Crafty Friday: Baby Dress

Here is one of numerous 'works in progress' I've got going. This little sundress isn't for anyone in particular. I had made a dress from this pattern for a bigger child, and since the pattern for a 'small' was still useable (you know how cutting into one size messes up another size), I decided to make use of some extra fabric I had. Sorry the picture is blurry--those are daisies on the two different fabrics. So...when I finally figure out where I put my buttonholer...the dress will have daisy-shaped buttons! It has a pair of bloomers and a mob cap to go with it.

This is a frugal use for extra fabric--make a coordinating trim on a garment! That's what I did with the darker pink.

Once this dress is finished, I'll pack it up and save it for a gift!

The dress is wonderful!! I love the two different fabrics like that!! I am going to have to try and be daring like that and see what I come up with, it really is just too adorable!

I'm so glad to have you back participating with us. I missed you. What a neat idea. That's great to also have a little gift on hand to give away. Way to go. It came out so cute. I like the way the two fabrics go together. Thanks for sharing.
