Okay, I know it's a terrible photo, but it's the best she was going to give me!  She's not very cooperative sometimes  Roll Eyes  This is my first attempt at baby clothes.  The only other article of clothing I've sewn were a tunic for my son and basic hemming on a recon.  I made the pattern from a similar jumper I had hanging around.  It's made from pinwhale corduroy and a lovely fat quarter I saw at Joanne's.  I got lucky and found some matching ribbon too Smiley  

This was a trial and error process and I definitely learned a few things along the way.  Things like - corduroy leaves small shavings all over after you've used a seam ripper on it 20 times - make sure you sew the lining on rights sides together before you turn - don't forget to finish your seams so that they stay together while your clothing is being worn.  Overall I'm pleased with the outcome.  There's nothing noticeably wrong unless you look really close.

and now, the dress...

Edit*  I added a better photo

Wow! That is so amazingly cute!
Looks so great for your first, I know my first didn't even pass as wearable  Cheesy
(And I think she looks pretty darn cute even with the grumpy face-sometimes when my little girl cries I can't help but laugh at the face she pulls!)

Blog full of food, fun, photography and every craft I attempt:

grumpy faced photos are always my fav.. lol. i plan to use all of ours as blackmail when our kids are dating age... *evil laugh*

your dress is absolutely adorable. my first was an eyesore. i tried it on my daughter and it was so tight i had to cut it back off... yea. a complete disaster. she kept saying "ouch mama" when i was putting it on her.. but i thought that was because she was fighting me off... lol

This is ADORABLE (dress and baby)!!!! I love the color combination! You did a very fabulous job.

I've learned soooo much through trial and error. You gain a lot of skills you can use for the next time.


Began teaching myself to sew and design in Aug '09...one dress at a time!

Oh so gorgeous! You obviously have an eye for this, so I hope you keep going with it. The colour combo is gorgeous and so is the mix of materials. You have done soooo well! Great work Smiley

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be?

We are all meant to shine.
