That dress makes your baby look so pimp.  And I mean pimp in the best sense ever.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Adorable and kudos for the second dress that's awesome!

I'm a sucker for those cincher belts and I'm dressing up my niece's dresses with them. I think that dress would be rad with a belt too.

I took an ordinary black satin ribbon about 1 inch wide and sewed 2 straight lines of elastic thread (shirring) to the back...or you could just sew elastic to the back instead of the elastic thread. Then sew it together so it looks like a headband and slide it down to form a belt Smiley

great job! what a cutie! the fun thing about sewing is, once you put the clothes on your little model, you can always improvise and change things around. I'm FOREVER making little adjustments, that's the best way to learn. Trial and error, I guess! have fun as you go! :-)
