Ooh, sewing baby clothes is fun and gratifying if you've been sewing only big clothes for a while. I made this little dress for one of my faux-nieces, who turned one on Friday.
The cool thing about this dress? The pattern, Simplicity 5333, is a pattern of my Nonna's that I found in her collection. Even cooler? It is copyrighted in 1981, the year I was born, which makes me wonder if she ever made one of these for me. Mom, any idea?
The fabric is Fairy Tale Friends. I love it and I think I would wear it myself. I figured everyone gives little girls pink and flowers so I wanted something cute but different. Guess what else? The buttons were from my inherited stash from my Nonna too.
I only mailed it 2 days after her birthday. I'm getting better.
