Too cute! I love the color. Smiley I am a freak about purple!
Now to make it "topped" what about a headband in the same fabric as the bloomers? As you can see from my postings I love headbands on my daughter. heh

 While in a thrift store last week I came across a Hawaiian floral print woman's skirt. Unfortunately it was a size 1/2 too small for me, but the more I looked at it the more I thought it would be terrific for a dress for the baby.

 I had already cut it apart when I realized I didn't take a before photo. Oops.
 It started life as an above the knee length woman's size 10 skirt, double layered of ruffles with a zipper in the back. The fabric has a really nice hand. Its a cotton with 3% Lycra so it has a wee bit of stretch. I made Quinn the dress and headband. Then I decided to whip up a little pair of white bloomers for her to wear under it. There is still a bit more of the red floral fabric. I think I will make her a little skirt with a stretch band at the top made from knit. The skirt will be for next year. She should be able to wear the dress next year as a top. Quinn is around 14 lbs, will be 5 months tomorrow and wears about a 3-6 month or so. Depends on the outfit, just like _all_ women's clothing. :^/
 Its my first try at shirring fabric. It went pretty well. My rows could have been a WHOLE lot more even, but thankfully the technique is very forgiving. I didn't steam iron the shirring yet, either. That will help a bit. I think I need to play with the bobbin settings to get a better stitch with the elastic thread. I want to make a couple of dresses for myself, and the tension will definitely need more, ahem, strength. ;^)

LOVE This! I am going back through older posts on the board, thus this "late" reply on the post. I so want to make one of these for my baby for this Fall/Winter!

Love the dresses and LOVE the straps! I think they totally work. I think that if you used the same shape strap, and put in elastic...maybe putting the straps on with Velcro in the back? Different options...but i love the shape of the straps. I will keep those in mind for dresses for my 4 month old.

Oh so cute...love them!
I am totally digging the cupcake fabric...love the double layered skirt that your little one is wearing in the one photo. And the butterfly romper is too cute! I need to make my 4 month old some of these. Smiley

That is absolutely beautiful...as is your daughter! Smiley
Now I had to go find a pattern/instructions to make a Yukata. This would be a great gift for my 15 year old, who loves all things Japanese.
