a calico dress. baby style.

I am finally able to post about something for a little girl! I have found that little girl items tend to be much for fun to make. I attribute that to my loyalty to my gender, I guess.

This is just a little dress and some shoes I made for a friend. I got to hold her baby girl last week. Made me want another one to snuggle like that all the time.

I just used a little girl's dress my mom made for a pattern and sewed it up. (Would anyone be interested in the pattern? I'd be willing to draw it up and post it if there's enough interest.) It's only four pieces with a little bias binding. Pretty easy. The little red polka dot shoes are made of flannel, lined with the coordinating fabric on the dress. I used the Stardust Shoes pattern and like it pretty well. I'd like to try this pattern for some baby boys I know are on the way.
