Joe's niece had a baby girl: Leila Rose! Loving that name, and good grief that baby girl is a cutie pie! Naturally I needed to make something for her. I really enjoyed making the Itty Bitty Dress for Naomi and thought a baby version would be fun too. I think this one is even cuter... seriously, check out how cute these fabrics are:
One of the sides is made from Just Hanging Monkey Bizness fabric, and the other side in the coral dot to dot from Children at Play range. I wanted to add a little something to the polka dot side to jazz it up, and simply cut out one of the flowers from the Just Hanging fabric and stitched it to the front.
The baby pattern came in newborn and 1-3 month size. I increased the sizing a little more to hopefully make it a 3-6 month size. One gotcha - I should have lengthened the straps too. Thinking I may add press-studs so that they can be clipped together instead of the ties. The ties just seem a little short to me.
Ooh and look how perfectly they go with the Dolly wrap cardigan.
If you still aren't convinced how cute this pattern is, then go feast your eyes at the Itty Bitty Dress flickr pool.
On an entirely unrelated note - the hydrangeas I planted this spring are starting to bloom. So pretty.
Have a great weekend,
