Sweet Baby Sewing

I finished another project! Yeah! I am on a roll. Something my husband told me really made an impression. I was pretty much hyperventilating because there is SO MUCH I want to do but not enough time, so I try to do all the things and it just aint pretty. So he suggested I do one thing, have a goal, and then move to the next thing. Well, I certainly wasn't thinking THAT when I bought fabric and supplies for one million projects.... Ha! But his practical advice helped. I was trying to finish this little baby dress in time for the Sew and Show Linkup! (the button is on the right hand side of the page here)
Being a model is so tiring

This baby top was sewn from a pattern in the book Boutique Casual for Boys and Girls by Sue Kim. While I thought the book was beautiful, I kept having to flip between 3 different patterns to get the instructions for this top. I wasn't too clear on a few of the instructions, so I winged it. This was the first time in recent memory that I used bias strips to finish the neck and arm edges. I used french seams throughout, but it is quite bulky on the front and back where the gathers are.
The fabric has been in my stash for a while now, I previously made the bloomers from Anna Maria Horner's free Knick Knack Knickers baby pattern.
What do you think?

Some of my construction is a bit wonky. And I lost my buttons, so that part will have to wait.


  1. I love the fabric. I am like you I have a million things I want to do, just not a million hours. :-)


Thank you in advance for sharing your lovely thoughts.
