I just had my little girl four weeks ago. she is small even for a newborn and it is hard to find clothing to fit her. I didn't want to spend a huge amount of money on clothing that she will outgrow in a few weeks/months so I decided to make a few things for her.
the first one is a onsie that I attached a skirt too. I added a ribbon around the waist and then sewed a button in the waist line to help tie the whole thing together.
here is my little one wearing it.
with this one I was inspired by the posts of some of the other crafty crafters on here. where they would take a skirt for an older child and cut it down to make a dress for a toddler. well seeing as my little one is so small (she weighs less then 7 lbs. at a month) I didn't see as how I would be able to find a skirt to fit my needs. so I drafted up a pattern that would relay the same style. this is my first attempt at drafting a pattern and there are a lot of techical errors on the dress. but she isn't old enough to cretique yet so I'm not sweating the small stuff. OK enough words here she is in her dress.
what do yall think? cc is always helpful.
