This is a dress I whipped up a couple of weeks ago for a baby whose gender wasn't going to be known until birth. I figured I would make two different outfits just in case, one for a girl and one for a boy... and she ended up being a sweet little girl.
A lot of times when I read blogs, I always wonder "Why don't people iron things before they take photos?!?!" I was in a bit of a rush to get this in the mail and needed to be at the post office already when I realized I didn't have any photos taken yet.
Here's a close-up of the hand crocheted trim I made for this dress. Very simple, but really adds something extra special to the look of the dress. I love the real mother of pearl buttons with the dark purple thread! The buttons came from a bag of buttons my sister sent me that I believe she got at a garage sale.
I got this lovely eggplant purple polka dot fabric on sale at Fabricland
when we were in Winnipeg at the beginning of May. I ended up buying
this shade, a lighter purple, and a pale grey. As soon as I got home I
wished I had purchased a few other colours as well! It's a lovely
lightweight cotton, great for baby clothes and all sorts of other
I really love the way this dress turned out, I think it's one of my most favourite. What do you think?
