I found this lovely tutorial and had to make the dress for my little Hamster that will be born in May! My first actual baby clothes item ever!

You can find the pattern here: http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2011/08/vintage-heirloom-dress-tutorial.html

I used vintage fabric and buttons from my stash! It should fit 3-6 month size. The bodice is fully lined too!

I altered the pattern slightly. Instead of a zipper I did a small snap at the neck with it open below. Also my skirt isn't as full because I was working with vintage fabric that was an odd shaped piece. I added a pleat in the back for shape as well.

I can't wait to meet the little girl that will wear this dress! Grin
