This dress was made from a pattern from i think sew. It is baby dress in linen. It's super easy and everyone seems to love the finished product. I've made several as baby shower gifts. Here is one I made for Madeline.
I used white linen for the body and the accent fabric is Sandy Klop for moda. I cut a 2" strip of fabric the length of the body of the dress and folded over the sides 1/4" and ironed. I then pinned it to the middle of the dress and top stitched each side 1/8". For the ruffle in the middle I took a 1" strip of fabric 3X the length of the body of the dress folded right sides together and stitched. I then turned it right side out by attaching a safety pin to one end and pushing it through. After I ironed it flat I put a baste stitch down the middle, pulled one of the free ends to bunch and pinned it in place. I pulled out my baste stitch after I had sewn my ruffle to the dress. I'm guessing there is an easier way then pulling it out after I have put another stitch on top but that was all I could think of to keep my ruffle in place. Here is how it turned out.
For the bloomers I used a pattern from Amy Butler's little stitches for little ones. It's a really fun book that will guarantee you have the best baby shower gift at the party.
So this photo doesn't do the dress justice. Sorry, I wasn't thinking blog photo when I took this. I was just thinking I had to get a photo of that cute little grumpy face and as my husband likes to call it "Rock Star Hair".
