Teeny Baby Dress

4 Mar

My first grandchild, a granddaughter, is due at the end of May, and I’m so thrilled about it! I only had one child (a son), so you can guess how pleased I am with all these lovely clothes to browse……mmmm…..

However, while looking at some lovely ‘special’ dresses with my daughter in law last weekend at a very well known department store, I was really shocked at the prices they were charging for basically less than half a yard of fabric and really simple designs.

Surely something there I could do??? So the internet is a wonderful thing and I found a lovely free pdf pattern for a simple dress and after a quick trip to Crafter’s Companions (that store is just far too handy in afraid!) for the required fabric – then off I go!

So as the point of starting a blog on the first place was to record the actual details of what I was doing (getting older does create failing memory!!) – then this is where I’ll begin..

The first part was selecting the pattern so a big thank you to Shwin Designs who provided a great PDF download and good online instructions.

Then it was time to get the fabric…

I really thought that the Makower Papillon Floral fabric stocked by Crafter’s Companion was really sweet and of lovely quality so decision was made!

To be continued…
