Very nice, have you added your bag to the Freshcut pool on Flickr?

One of the perks of having small children is watching Mr. Roger's every afternoon.  I've caught myself watching it even when the kid's aren't in the room.  I love it when he tours factories to see how things are made.  Especially when they showed how construction paper and crayons are made.  Marbles too.

The documentary I watched said that his mom hand knit 12 sweaters every year for all the people on her gift giving list, one for each of them.  That must have been all the poor lady did!

Netflix has the best documentary about Mr. Rogers.  I sat and watched the whole thing from beginning to end, and it's almost 2 hours long!  There will never be anyone like him again.

Is the dress your own pattern?

No.  I used NewLook 6576.  I found it at WalMart a few weeks ago, so (hopefully) it should still be in stock.  (I don't know how often they rotate their patterns.)

I'm pretty excited, it's a full sized sheet and this little bitty dress barely used a corner's worth.  (And the top has this fancy scalloped border thing happening, it should make an awesome dressy dress or something super fancy.)  Cheesy

Oh, so so so so cute! I love the colors in the patchwork.  Did you cut out the jumper from a plain fabric then patchwork over it? Because the edges came out very nicely and the squares are so centered. You did an awesome job!

I wish I could take the credit, but it wasn't nearly that complicated.  It's a pre-patchworked fabric I bought at Joann's a couple of years ago.  I've gotten compliments on everything I've ever made with it.  Too bad it'll soon be gone.  Cry

This dress was made using the same pattern as the pink patchwork one I made, I really am in love with this pattern right now.  I was worried the sheet would be too see-through, but the top facing and interfacing makes it just right.  (You can just barely make out the line in these photos.)



Button Detail:

I used 1" shell buttons again, I just think they're so pretty on little girl clothes.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Thanks! Grin

Sead, that is sooo cute!  I love it.  And I'm also having a girl in June (and I have all boys---3 of them)   Grin

Did you use a pattern?  If so, which one??  I would love to whip some of these up as well.  I'm having the hardest time finding little girl clothes that I like. 

I did use a pattern, I used New Look 6576 Size A (nb - l), which was like $3.50 at WalMart of all places.  And I know exactly what you mean about not finding girl clothes you like, I never really paid attention to them before now.  So many garish colors and tacky prints, ugh.

This is the first dress/jumper/romper I've made for my first baby girl, due in June.  Yay!!!  (I have boys.)  It was so simple, and I love it.  I already have fabric lined up for 3 or 4 more.



And detail of the buttons (I've finally mastered the buttonhole feature on my sewing machine!):

I used coral colored, 1" shell buttons.  I'm hoping they stand up to the washing machine (turned inside out, on the gentle cycle), because with 3 little kids, I don't do handwashing. Roll Eyes

Any and all comments/questions welcomed.
