Description

I made this little dress for my sister’s four month old baby girl. I had this deep blue linen leftover and it was just enough to make this dress. Also I had a slice of cotton fabric with pale blue stripes. I left the hem and the sleeves unfinished (just zig zag) so that the dress would have a personality.

The pattern is from a Finnish sewing magazine.

    That is beautiful – a very lucky baby indeed! The trim really lifts the dark blue. Wouldn’t mind a dress like this myself :)

      Thank you for such kind words! Actually I was thinking how this pattern would suit for a “kid” like me too! :) Linen is so wonderful to work with.

      Thank you! No, unfortunately it’s not. It’s from Suuri käsityölehti, a Finnish sewing magazine. But I’m pretty sure all of the patterns come from abroad :)
