My friends baby is sooo cute I wanted to make her a dress.  This fabric was perfect because I didn't have a bunch of it to make a full sized childs outfit. I love the print and color! I haven't got pictures of her in it yet. I will post them later.  She's 9 months.  i know the dress looks doll sized but it stretches to twice it's size. Nyla thought it was for her Cabbage Patch!  lol

Very simple, made my own pattern, shirred it all around and added shirred straps.  The flower headband looks huge on this picture but is perfectly sized for a baby.  Here's the link to the bedding I made for the same baby.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=255927.0

The pics there do her no justice, she's gotten cuter every day.

Very Cute! I love the bedroom too. You are right, not a typical room! I wouldn't have thought of making a garbage can cover, creative!

I tried to find your business online, but no luck... is there a website?

Inside me is a thin woman dying to get out, sometimes I give the broad cookies to shut her up!

Workin on it right now!  I'm working with a lady and I'm getting everything together so it will be up soon.  In the meantime I opened an ETsy store but have yet to fill it.  I will be doing a blog as well.  I will post the links under my profile once it's all together.  Thanks for asking!

That's darling and with the shirring, it should fit for a longer time.

I previously posted this dress with pics of it on a hanger.  So boring.  You all know I love action shots but when I make things for people I don't always get pictures.  Little Chloe came by and I had to get this dress on her.  SHe is sooooo cute to me!  She's my up and coming model.  Just got to get a lil bigger.

It was a very simple dress, no pattern necessary.  Just a shirred tube with shirred straps and a ruffled hem.  Perfect for babies.
