Baby sewing is so much fun. The pattern pieces are small, they don't require a huge amount of fabric, "fitting" usually isn't an issue, and it always turns out so cute!
A bebe girl was born the middle of May, and this wee dress is for her. It is Simplicity 2905. I dug the fabric up from the stash (been trying to make good use out of stash lately! go me!). The buttons are a purchase from Common Threads. The pattern was straightforward and simple. The only hiccup I had was with the gathering on the front where the bodice meets the dress. It was my own issue though, not one from the pattern. I took the simple route and used steam-a-seam to attach the ribbon details prior to stitching it on by machine (no pinning that way!).
While I was at it, I picked up some onesies and had some fun on the embroidery front! How cute are these?!
Two of the designs I got from Designs by Sick during a $2 sale. The one on the left I added the letters to as bebe's middle name is Starr, so I decided to be a little creative with a monogram.
The onesies can be a little tricky to embroider at first. But once I figured it out, it's addicting. I picked some up for Jake, too, now I just need to come up with some cute designs!!
