I've been sewing lately, but did not post for a while

playsuit (Intemporels pour bébé) and bucket hat (from oliver + s) for a newborn baby boy

Itty bitty newborn dress. I saw this dress on craftster and had to make a version for my little one, once I knew we were expecting a girl.

This dress really is tiny! It barely fit my 2-week early, 6 lbs 6 ounces and 18.5 in baby during the first week.

Wrap dress made of corduroy - very stiff. I'd use a different material next time. And bias tape is called *bias* tape and not straight tape for a reason... Angry

And finally a dress for my one-year-old goddaughter. I had so much fun making this. I am really looking forward to when my little one starts to walk and it is finally time to make her wear dresses.

I used a pattern from Sue&Blu, but made the dress out of an old men's shirt reusing the original hem and button panel - yeah to avoiding sewing button holes. I already plan on making a version in dusk pink - offwhit lace for my little one next year - or maybe dark red velvet and white satin for Christmas???
What do you think?
