The Quilter Makes a Dress

I don’t make clothes. I haven’t made any since I was 15 and made a pair of pajama pants. I used a directional fabric and cut everything upside down. Oops! This incident put me off clothes sewing for the second half of my life.  Things have changed…I’m turning 30 in 2 months and I have a beautiful baby girl to sew for now, it is time I try new things.

Anne is a natural beauty and I needed a very simple dress for my serious lack of seamstress skills. I found a pattern posted on Craft Gossip from Bramcost Publications. It was perfect for my skill set. I found this great patched plaid fabric at JoAnns.

Here are a few more gratuitously cute pictures:

Her playing – she can really move well in it 🙂

Uber cute baby view 😀

I still need to put in a hem, but in the mean time I am just so tickled pink with how it turned out!
