I wanted to get a chilli pepper costume for my little one that was due mid October and I didnt want to pay for shipping so I've decided I will make it myself while waiting for labor. It was a first thing I have ever made.

here with his big sister

When I got done with the costume I decided to make a dress for my daughter. Finished it just few hours before my water broke Cheesy  I really liked working on the dress even though a lot of alterations had to be made as my lining didnt line correctly and the straps were too far apart etc etc

So cute!
The chili pepper is amazing, especially considering it was your first project!
Did you use a pattern or did you make it from scratch?

By the way, congratulations!  Cheesy

Thank you all!

I made it from scratch, I found a pattern for it online to buy but I am too cheap and just made it from scratch instead. I bought cheap fleece fabric and then took one of them sleeping sacks size 0-9, traced it and added the pointy end at the bottom, I put in a zipper to the front, should've bought that longer but it worked too. For the hat I cut out a rectangle and added the little stem to it, then cut out a round collar piece with leaves on it, cut out more leaves and sewed that on the collar and then sewed the collar with leaves to the rectangle. There are two strips of fleece at the front to tie it under the babies neck. I know the actual pattern would be better and probably easier but it looks ok this way too.

I think the commercial pattern is from Kwik Sew, but in my opinion your version looks better. It has more leaves and the hat is cuter. Smiley
