I went to a baby shower yesterday. After about the 10th time (no exaggeration!) I was getting tired of my usual go-to gift for expectant moms, the Amy Butler Everyday Diaper Bag seen here. Then I remembered that while pregnant with B, I really wanted to make her Made by Rae's Itty Bitty Baby Dress, a free newborn baby dress pattern.
I used fabric and trims I had in my stash. The hem is actually grosgrain ribbon, not bias tape that the pattern called for. The fabric is by Liz Scott. It came together really fast
I also made a peekaboo bonnet to match, another pattern by Rae. I had made this pattern before, last summer when B was still a baby .
Again I used grosgain ribbon for the ties. I was too lazy to make my own bias tape. I also stitched in the ditch instead of hand-sewing the two sides together. The result wasn't too awful.
Here's the reverse side. The fabric is a purple moda bella solid which I also used for the lining of the dress bodice.
Here's the whole outfit together and below is a detail of the bodice.
