So - I bragged for a few minutes earlier this week about the cute little pj's I made for the new baby. Well, I was inspired!! I've been seeing cute little dress patterns and wondering if I could make them myself. My plan was to try out the pj's and see how it went. If I liked it, I'd try out something a little larger/more complex for Abby. If not - well, no harm done.
**She really does like it...I'm not sure why I got the grump face in this one but she SO looks like me in that picture.
Anyways - after my attempt at the baby pj's I decided this was WAY outta my league...BUT, I was headed home this weekend so I enlisted my Mom to make this cute little dress for Abby. Didn't it turn out great??
I got the pattern here and we just picked some cute fabric from Joann's so I'm not sure who the designer was but I think it's perfect. I love the placket (a new word for me this weekend) and the contrast stripe on the sleeve and bottom.
The pattern says it's for advanced beginners which I am clearly NOT, so getting mom's help was a great idea. We printed and cut the pattern, picked out fabric at Joann's and got to sewing. Well, Mom got to sewing, I got to knitting (I've got a new pattern in my brain and need to finish the old one before I can move to the next...that's my rule!! Otherwise hobbies get out of control quickly!!).
