Itty Bitty Baby Dress

I knew I was saving those scraps for a reason...


Made from leftovers of a skirt (the polka dot fabric), a pillowcase (the red pleated trim) and some embroidery floss from who knows when :)

Since I was trying not to buy anything for this, I picked out the stitching from part of the pleated trim and ironed my little heart out to make the waistband.



I used this wonderful free pattern.

And I upped the size a little bit, because well, I weighed 8 pounds... and my husband weighed nearly 10.

(I had to edit this when I showed hubby. I had put that he weighed nine pounds, but he proudly corrected me he came in at almost ten. Scary...)

To be tucked away for my someday...

Aww, Lauren, that is a lovely baby dress! I'm glad you put that it was getting tucked away, or you were about to get a phone call from a very curious friend! :) But it is a super sweet little dress!

Oh that is so sweet! You did such a wonderful job! I just finished making some dresses for my daughter as well, I'll have to post some pictures of them on my blog and show you! I was so happy to be able to do this for Miss H. (my daughter) because I have "5" sisters and there were no heirlooms to pass down (after five babies wore the hand me downs). So any way, I was so happy to be able to make my daughter some very special things to be passed down to her future daughter(s)!
You do such pretty work!

Lauren said...

Very cute dress! I love polka dots!

Laura said...

Hmm, seems like my comment was eaten. Anyway, it's an adorable dress, and I love the baby blue and red combo. The pattern is super-cute -- I might have to make one myself! :-)

I am Mrs. Carson and I found your blog shortly before Christmas. I've been married about as long as you have and also wish for a baby. But the Lord hasn't seen fit to give us one yet. We pass a year next week. You're a few weeks away from the mark. We aren't sure what to think, feel, or do, since the doctors say if a young couple hasn't conceived in a year, to go in. I've been reading your blog going back almost to the start and just want to let you know your blog means a lot to me right now.
