this is a patchwork dress that I am working on for my four week old little girl. with her being in the 2% of her weight compared to other babies her age, I can't find many things that will fit her. this has sent me on a sewing spree. which is hard to do with no extra money and no fabric store near by.

this is the third dress I have made her. right now I am working on a pair of bloomers to match. let me know what you think.

here is the dress with my first attempt at bloomers to match. baby just woke up from her nap and wanted to be fed more then model.

What a cutie!  It must be frustrating to try to find things to fit her!  Good thing you sew, but what a stress for a new mother to HAVE to sew for her child!  You seem to be doing well with what you have on hand!  What did you use for the skirt?  I bet you might have a lot of things in your own closet that can be reconned to fit the little one!

The dress is so cute and looks comfy, too!

thanks so much for the replies.

the top of this dress is a newborn sized tak that came dow to her feet (way tooo big). the blue ad white fabric is from pillow cases and the tan is an old sheet.  Grin
