tiny dresses

I have a new great niece due to arrive next month. I thought she could use some tiny geranium dresses for summer so I set to work. I love this pattern by Made by Rae, it goes together beautifully and is a perfect dress for every size girl. I picked up 2 pretty, old fashioned florals from the quilt shop & set to work.....
Love the pink polka dot I lined this one with, and the little bit of pink ricrac poking out above the gathered skirt...
Itty bitty buttons up the back are the perfect finishing touch.
This lavender and yellow floral worked it's way to the cutting table too...
This one is lined with lavender solid and I opted for a pleated skirt instead of gathers...
and again with the itty bitty buttons!
I made them in size 3-6 months which only takes a yard of the main fabric (less really! I had plenty left over) and 1/4 yard of the contrast. I hope they are well loved.

The little dresses are so beautiful! Reminds me of those long ago days when I used to sew such things for my own two babies.
