A little spring dress I made to try out the pattern I want to use to make my daughter a dress for her first birthday party. Only the bodice is from the pattern. The skirt was just the rectangle of fabric left over after making the bodice.
I made the smallest size and it’s still huge! I’d love some advice on how to make infant clothing the right size. Everything I’ve made for her has been too big.
2/3 yd of fabric purchased for $1 from the remnant bin at Walmart, zipper purchased so long ago I don’t remember where it came from, ribbons scavenged from a Victoria’s Secret shopping bag
