Sewing baby clothes = Instant gratification!
Here's Rachel's first handmade dress. I bought this small wale corduroy a month or so ago from JoAnn's, but had to wait for a button sale before I could make it.
This went together really easily and I had no problems with the construction. The only issue to write about is the sizing. I made the smallest size - newborn. However, this little black onzie is a 1-3 month, and you can see it's pretty big on the sides. I'd say this dress is more of a 3-6 month size. All I can do is laugh about it. As I've been sewing for quite awhile now, I know how to make adult size patterns fit, even with all the extra ease that's allowed for. But I've no idea what I'm doing with baby clothes. Now you know why I didn't make anything for her before she was born.
Hopefully this will fit sometime this winter or early spring. It's made from corduroy after all. That's usually a cold weather fabric.
Up next - a silk tunic for me. I hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
