Description

My best friend’s first niece came into the world a week ago today, and I really wanted to make a perfect little xmas dress just for her!! I used Simplicity 9784 View A, and I found this poly-stretch velvet like fabric in the clearance section that I actually ended up really liking. I added belt loops to the pattern and white satin ribbon for a belt. This was my first attempt at button holes on clothing! Doing them on a slightly stretchy fabric made it a little interesting but I thought it turned out ok! My sewing machine has a great decorative stitch that resembles snowflakes that I used to finish off the hem and collar. I love it!

    Ooooo ah ohhhh. I hope they let the baby wear it. Some folk don’t believe in dressing newborns formally but I love to. Going in my favorites.
